South Head Challenge

We are taking a break from running the South Head Challenge in 2018. We aim to be back next year if we can get the resources to help run the event.

If you are looking for an event to fill the gap, sign-up to the Rodney Coastal Challenge 

Hosted by the Waitemata Canoe and Multisport Club, the South Head Challenge is situated at Lake Ototoa, about one hour from central Auckland on the South Head of the Kaipara Harbour.

This stunning location provides a multisport challenge that is a fast pace hit-out for top athletes and the ideal race for first timers; kayaking on Lake Ototoa and entering the northern end of Woodhill Forrest for the mountain bike and run. The compact central transition area means a support team is optional as all stages start and finish at the reserve

The addition of a short course this year is an ideal distance for; juniors, family teams and athletes looking to ease back into the race calendar after the winter break.

Follow us on Facebook and stay up to date with race information.

The event details are:
