From the Cook Islands Triathlon Club we extend to you an invitation to the 24th annual Air New Zealand Rarotonga International Triathlon Festival.
While the main sporting event is the triathlon (1500m/41km/10km) there is also an ocean swim (800m) and a cycle race (31km) and several fun runs to take your edges off!

The events have been popular with first timers, long course specialists, ITU age group representatives and a few ITU Elites.  If you are looking for a different sort of race/holiday, this is one that most club level and age group competitors will enjoy.  Bring colleagues, partners, friends, family or come as a single and be part of our like-minded group.  This is a wonderful opportunity to share and experience Polynesia, its islands and its laid back lifestyle...combining achievements with relaxation!

The social activities organised around the weeks' program for competitors and supporters alike ensure that your trip to the Cook Islands will be a memorable one.
