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!

Marlborough Quadrathon 15 March 2015

17 02 2015

Quadrathon 2015 RESULTS

Update: Quadrathon Pre Race Briefing 2015

The Marlborough Quadrathon is on Sunday March 15th.

This long running event has been a favourite race amongst the die hard multisporters , the keen but not-so-committed mutisporters, and those who only swim, kayak, bike or run for over 30 years.

The distances of 800m swim, 8km kayak, 30 km Cycle and 8km run take the event from the start in Waikawa Bay to the finish at Whites Bay. It is an achievable event for those wanting to complete the whole thing as an individual or a really fun event for you to do with your mates or work colleagues. Or make it a competitive bragging rights event and challenge another team to a duel. Teams can be 2, 3 or 4 person.

For further info check out the entry form and if you’ve still need more info phone or email Andrea 03 5784767 or andreakoorey@hotmail.com

800m SWIM commences at the Waikawa Bay Jetty. Swim around buoys out in the bay and back to Waikawa Bay jetty. Exit on the south side of the jetty. Team swimmers must tag their kayaker at the waters edge before continuing their next swim lap. (Kayakers then run to their boats)  All swimmers will exit the water and round a cone at the waters edge on each lap. (note that this year there will also be 800m and 2400m Swim options as part of the Marlborough Open Water Swim Champs – more on that to follow)

8km KAYAK starts from Waikawa Bay foreshore, paddle to Whatamango Bay keeping to the shoreline on your true right all the way there. Once you have rounded Karaka point keep going all the way to the end of the bay near the small DOC camp ground. There will be a big orange marker buoy that competitors must go around, then head back to waikawa via the same route. Competitors are urged to stay as close as practical to the shore line in the interests of safety.

33km CYCLE leg leaves Waikawa bay and heads directly towards Picton, turning just before the township onto Wellington Street which goes up hill for two hundred meters before turning right into Broadway Street. At the end of this short street competitors turn left onto State highway 1. Cyclists head to Tuamarina and turn left here onto Pembers Road carrying into Rarangi Road. The cycle transition is near the Monkey bay carpark at the northern end of Rarangi beach.

8km RUN From the transition runners run up the walking track onto Port Underwood Road, then run along the right hand road verge for approximately 500meters then back onto the track that leads to Whites bay. Once past Whites bay runners will then join onto the Black Jack track which again heads up hill in a loop before returning to Whites Bay finishing on the grass next to the Surf Life Saving club rooms.

Marlborough Quadrathon 2012 results

18 03 2012

Race sponsor from Cycle World, Ray Dunstan, won "coolest kit" and fastest bike time.

A smaller than expected, but quality field took part in this years Quadrathon event. With the wind getting up, a change of course in the kayak leg was called for, with an out and back leg, twice around. This added to some extra spectator viewing at Waikawa Bay.

First out of the swim was vet team man Martin Fletcher followed by swim guns Mark Grammer and Aaron Davis.

The kayak section ended up in a battle of Cycleworld team member Mike Pike and individual Jeremy McKenzie, with McKenzie taking a small lead onto the bike over Ray Dunstan.

However once time trial specialist Ray got going and with someone to chase down, he was always going to be hard to beat to the next transition.

A 6 minute lead was more than enough for anchorman runner Dale Smit, who held on to record a well deserved team win for team Cycleworld over a fast finishing individual McKenzie, who had narrowed the gap to a little under 2 minutes.

The women’s race proved an even closer race between Almuth Waechter and Bek Schrep, with virtually nothing separating them after the swim and kayak leg. Almuth had the jump on Bek getting onto the bike, and with only a slender 2 and half minute led going into the run section, still had plenty of work to do to hold off Bek.

The “underdone”team of Mark Grammer, Tracey Richardson, Jamie Kidd and Pavel took out the mixed division over “Undecided” with placings here only decided on the final section of the run leg.
