Taupō will host the very best IRONMAN 70.3 professional athletes over the weekend of November 28-29, 2020, as well as some of the most-committed age-group competitors from all corners of the globe.

In total, over 5,000 participants will descend on Great Lake Taupō.

Although it will be the first time the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship has been held in New Zealand, Taupō has been home to IRONMAN New Zealand since 1999 and IRONMAN 70.3 Taupō since 2015, where the best of New Zealand’s breath-taking scenery is showcased.

Thanks to the locals’ pure Kiwi spirit, you will feel like a local the minute you arrive.

The race itself will feature a swim in the world’s largest fresh water lake, a bike course through New Zealand’s renowned rural landscape and a run course which takes in views of the lake front that will be lined with spectator and local support.

This is an IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship event not to be missed!!

Beautiful Taupo

Taupo is situated four hours from New Zealand’s capital city of Auckland, on the North Island. It is distinguished by its lakefront setting and outdoor sports ranging from fishing to jet-boating. The vast waters of Lake Taupo, a volcanic caldera, drain into the Huka Falls, dramatic, crystal-blue cascades reachable by hiking and biking trails. Surrounding Taupo are hot springs like those filling the Craters of the Moon reserve.

Weather

The weather in Taupo is much cooler than other IRONMAN events around the world. Athletes and their families are advised to pack warm clothes. The average November temperature is around 20 degrees with night dropping to 10 degrees.
