Multisport - Solo & Teams

Kayak 10k / Mtn Bike 28k / Mtn Run 17k

The feature multisport event is a challenging yet achievable tour showcasing Porirua's awesome outdoor resource with options to go solo or in a team. 

Multisport legends such as Richard and Elina Ussher, Marcel Hagener, Fleur Pawsey, Jill Westenra, James Coubrough and Daniel Jones have all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. You will too!

Expected times 4hrs to 8hrs.

Multisports kick off from Whitireia Boat Ramp with the 10k kayak section up Porirua Harbour, across the mouth and under Paratamata Bridge into Pauatahanui Inlet, and then back to Whitireia. It's a scenic and serene route, but with the odd sea breeze, sand bank, tidal eddies and harbour swells, you need your wits about you.

Multisporters then continue into the 28km Mountain Bike section. The course follows a myriad of hidden trails around Porirua with approx 800m of climbing and a full compliment of terrain from purpose built single-track to farmland, forests, ridge tops and cycle paths. It’s starts with a loop in Takapuwahia Reserve (Ngati Toa land) with some climbing, single-track and sweet sweeping downhill and a couple of hairy moments for good measure. Then you pass back through HQ again before following cycle paths to the awesome single-track networks on Colonial Knob/Rangituhi. There’s a big climb to the top, and then more single-track back down to transition. E-bikes are not allowed.

Multisporters then finish with a spectacular 17km Mountain Run over a mix of native bush tracks, private farm lands and hidden coastal beaches 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.
