Welcome to the Kaiapoi Classic Multisport Race & Duathlon

Sunday 24 November 2013

Event date for 2013 is Sunday 24 November. Great feedback received from last years competitors who were very pleased to have this popular local race return following the earthquake recess.

Looking forward to another successful race this year and aiming for lots more entrants. So dig out the running shoes, pump up your bike tires, dust of the kayak and get active!


To make this event even more accessible to all fitness levels we are introducing single entry options for the run and mt bike section. This means you can enter just the run or just the mt bike section.


The Kaiapoi Classic is a fun and enjoyable event that is designed to be shared with friends, work colleagues and family. Each stage is designed to be easy enough for the weekend athlete and first-timer, yet provide a challenge for the more serious competitor.

It is one of the few "short-course" multisport events featuring mt biking rather than road biking.

What's more, all transitions for the Kaiapoi Classic take place in the same area. This means support crews can sit and relax by the banks of the picturesque Kaiapoi River and enjoy the food stalls, live music and kids entertainment.

The whole of Kaiapoi gets behind this event, with local businesses donating a plethora of spot prizes, and many Kaiapoi clubs and volunteer organisations provide a virtual army of helpers.
