Napier World Triathlon Cup a success!

The Napier World Triathlon Cup, held in Napier this weekend, has been deemed a success, with Triathlon New Zealand thanking the city for hosting the event.

Napier was  a hive of activity as an elite group of athletes take part in the World Triathlon Cup and Age Group World Champs this weekend.

The 2024 Napier World Triathlon Cup is a sprint distance triathlon - 750m swim, 20km cycle and 5km run.  The event was held at Perfume Point and the surrounding area of Napier. The 2024 event was part of a Triathlon Festival with the NZ Sprint Distance Championships,

In a Facebook post after the event, Triathlon New Zealand said: “How good was Napier's debut on the World Triathlon circuit? This good!”

“The athletes, including hometown hero Eva Goodisson loved every minute of it (especially those pesky Aussies 😜. Well done AusTriathlon!)”

“To everyone involved in Triathlon Summer Series Napier, including Napier City Council - Te Kaunihera o Ahuriri, Hawke's Bay Tourism Industry Association, all the volunteers and TOs and all those responsible for the epic coverage on TVNZ+, a sincere thank you from the team at Triathlon New Zealand.”
