MULTISPORT

Multisport - Solo & Teams

Kayak 12k / Mtn Bike 28k / Mtn Run 18k

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.


Multisporters kick off from Whitireia Boat Ramp with the 12k 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 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.

Multisporters then finish with a spectacular 18km Mountain Run over a mix of native bush tracks, private farm lands and pine forest 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.
