From the Cook Islands Triathlon, we extend to you an invitation to the 23rd annual Air New Zealand Rarotonga International Triathlon festival.
While the main sporting event is the triathlon (1500/41/10) there is also an ocean swim (800m) a cycle race (31km).
The events have been popular with first timers, long course specialists, ITU age group representatives and a few ITU Elites. Check out the Results from previous years to get an idea of who’s been competing in past years and the top 10 times in the various categories.
If you are looking for a different sort of race, this is one that most club level and age group competitors will enjoy. This race is high in enjoyment and with the opportunity to sample Polynesia – its islands and its laid-back lifestyle.
The social activities which have been organised for competitors and supporters ensure that your trip to the Cook Islands will be unforgettable for everyone.
A special thank-you to Scottie, a professional events photographer who has been attending our event for the past few years and who has given us permission to use his photos on this website. Please visit Scottie T’s Raro Tri Photos for more photos.
