Event Details

Get out and proud at the Rainbow Fun Triathlon which will be held on Saturday 9 March 2019 as a part of the Wellington Pride Festival.  It features an 800m sea swim, 10km bicycle ride and 5km run, with teams of up to three people undertaking the three sections.

DSW Swim Club and Wellington Frontrunners will create the teams from the registrations.

The focus is on fun rather than competition. It will start from Freyberg Beach at 10am, with a briefing at 9.30am.

Please note that this is an informal event, and that all participants enter at their own risk.

Participants will be notified soon by email about team formation

Updated 4.30pm on Friday 8 March:
We have regretfully decided to cancel the event this year.
The weather forecast has deteriorated (for both Saturday and Sunday)
We’re very sorry to disappoint all the participants and volunteers, but we don’t feel we could guarantee a fun (and safe) event in the forecast conditions.
wimming, cycling and running in the wind and rain isn’t the fun event we’d hoped for!
But thanks for your enthusiasm – and enjoy the rest of the Pride Festival
– Richard and Antony, DSW and Frontrunners
