IRONMAN NEW ZEALAND   
SATURDAY, MARCH 03, 2018
IRONMAN New Zealand is the oldest IRONMAN race outside of Kona. The event takes place in Taupo, a world famous destination resort area known for its incredible natural beauty, friendly people and diverse activities for people of all ages and interests. Located in the middle of the North Island, Taupo is an ideal location for an IRONMAN event and the town goes all out to welcome the athletes and their families.

The race is extremely well organized and has become a favorite for athletes from around the world. Along with the many options for activities in the local area the North and South Islands of New Zealand offer an endless range of ecosystems and scenery including, black and white sand beaches, great surfing beaches, ancient forests with some of the oldest tress in the world, rainforests, lush green pastures, large modern cities, small rural towns, snow capped volcanoes, natural hot springs, mud pools, glaciers and fiords, crystal clear lakes and rivers with great fishing.

Please join Endurance Sports Travel owner Ken Glah on a wonderful trip to one of the friendliest countries in the world: "I have raced IRONMAN New Zealand more than 15 times and have spent more than 2 years of my life training, racing and traveling in this amazing country."
