Welcome to the Kaiapoi Classic Multisport Race & Duathlon

Due to low registrations we regret to advise that this years event is cancelled!!

Event date for 2014 is Sunday 2 November.

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!


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 and picturesque Kaiapoi River while waiting for competitors to finish.

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.
