DUATHLON

Duathlon - Solo & Teams

Mtn Bike 28k / Mtn Run 18k

The duathlon is a challenging yet achievable option for Xterra exponents, mountain bikers or runners looking for something new, or anyone keen for an intro multisport. 

It's an awesome showcase of Porirua's awesome outdoor resource with options to go solo or in a team. 

Expected times 3hrs to 6hrs.


Duathletes kick off from Whitireia Polytechnic on mountain bikes with a 28k ride following a myriad of hidden trails around Porirua, with terrain ranging from single track to farmland, forests, ridge tops and cycle paths. It's starts following cycle paths along Porirua Stream and through Bishop Viard College to the awesome single-track networks over Colonial Knob/Rangituhi and around Spicer Forest before returning on the cycle paths back to transition. No E-bikes allowed.

The Duathlon events finish with a spectacular 18km Mountain Run over a mix of native bush tracks, private farm lands and pine forests with views over Porirua and Cook Strait. But with 900m of climbing this run is as challenging as it is spectacular. It starts from HQ and runs through Porirua Scenic Reserve and over the very top of Colonial Knob where you head south down into Spicer Forest for a loop back around to the trails of lower Colonial Knob before taking in trails through Viard College and Porirua Stream back to finish at HQ.
