Marlborough Multisport Series 2017

3 12 2016

fb-header

This summer, the Marlborough Triathlon and Multisport Club are again partnering with Transition Events  to present the Marlborough Multisport Series.  This series incorporates our three iconic events held in the Marlborough Sounds each summer.

The series is designed so that distances in each event are roughly the same and they incorporate interesting and challenging courses. In an effort to encourage new people to have a go, the paddle section of each event has been reduced to 4km, meaning that the experts can have a super fast hit out, but beginners can achieve the distance on most types of paddling craft.

You can choose either the swim tri or kayak tri option, individual or team.

Entries are open now! So what are you waiting for? Get entered, get training, have fun and we’ll see you on the start line!

Michael Huntley Memorial Triathlon 1 April 2012

23 03 2012

Ryan Lock strides out in the duathlon section of the Michael Huntley Memorial

The Michael Huntley Memorial Triathlon and Duathlon is taking place on 1 April at Anakiwa. The race doubles as the Marlborough Triathlon & Multisport Club Champs and will be run over Olympic level distances (other options are also available). There will be a new champ this year as last year’s overall winner, Cory Mackay, is a non-starter in 2012.

The likely favourite for the Men’s race will be Jeremy McKenzie who has proven to be unbeatable in local races and is the current National Duathlon champ in his age group. He also finished 6th in the Coast to Coast and recently qualified for the Triathlon World Champs with a 4th place finish in Wellington. In the Women’s race last year’s winner Almuth Waechter is again the favourite. She recently won the Women’s section of the Quadrathon on the back of scant training in the kayak. As a proven runner and former New Zealand representative she will be hard to beat. Long course distances are as follows: 

Triathlon: swim 1500m, bike 40k, run 10k 

Duathlon: run 5k, bike 40k, run 10k 

Other race options are shown below.

Michael Huntley – Results and Photos

Juliet Wiseman and Martyn Crossley competing in the MH Tri on Saturday

The 5th running of the Michael Huntley Memorial Triathlon and Duathlon attracted a few new entrants to multisport competition.  After a phenomenal debut 6th placing in the Coast to Coast recently, winemaker and pighunter runner, Jeremy McKenzie wiped the floor of all competition with his blistering opening 10km run in the Duathlon. He went on to win by 15 minutes in 2.04.33, a smart time at the 10/40/5 distance.  Veteran cyclists Anthony Clark and David Craig also performed impressively given their relatively late arrival to the sport of duathlon.  Anthony managed tried to snow everybody with his “I’m just here to see how it goes” attitude at the start, and then proceeded to take a good second place ahead of NZ age group rep Ryan Lock.

Corey McKay pulled off a good win in the long Triathlon in 2.27.16, with Ironman Roger Golding in second, and Martin Crossley 3rd.
