Welcome to Triathlon

Hawke's Bay

Triathlon Hawke's Bay is a super friendly, not-for-profit, charitable multi sport Club. We are a professionally run organisation that prides itself on supporting the needs of all its members, whether you want to simply have a go or achieve to an elite level. We have over 3000 people take part in our 22+ events each year.

The club has been in existence since 1986 and offers triathlon opportunities to the young and old, the fit to the beginner. We pride ourselves on being a family orientated club who welcomes everyone from child to grandparent. We are a social bunch with a shared love of physical activity.

Family Friendly
When we say we are open to all, we really are! In 2021 Triathlon HB are super excited to be launching a new initiative for youth. We have the Napier Port Multisport Youth Squad for 14-19 year olds and the Napier Port Multisport Kids Crew for 7-13 year olds. The main focus is FUN and this is open to kids of ALL abilities. Lots of events to participate in, lots of free multi sport goodies (free race belts, free transition towels, free visors etc) for members and Tri NZ accredited coaching available. Plus you will get to meet lots of new people and get to run around outside.

As well as the Youth Squads we also have a series of Iron Kids mini triathlons events in Jan, Feb and March of each year based at Ocean Spa and disciplines for kids events at our winter duathlon and summer triathlon series. We operate year round!

Social and Welcoming
Be part of the BEST sports club in Hawkes Bay. Triathlon Hawkes Bay are proud to be the WINNERS of the Sport HB Grassroots Club of the Year Award 2021. This is because our members make us the best!

You can participate in our events as a casual or you can join as a member. When you join you will be asked if you want to be paired up with another member that can show you the ropes. We will help you along your fitness journey every step of the way.

We pride ourselves of being an "all inclusive" club. Our unofficial motto is "No triathlete left behind". We do not pack up before everyone has finished and encourage everyone, no matter what fitness level, size or shape to come and give it a try. We put the TRI in TRIathlon!

Tri HB also offer more than just triathlons - you do not have to be good at swimming, cycling and running to be a member. We also offer duathlons (run, cycle, run), aquathlons (swim, run), aquabikes (swim, bike), solo disciplines (swim or cycle or run or walk) and team and individual entries.

As well as the sporting stuff, we hold an Annual Club Celebration Dinner, we host merchandise sales and social events and have casual swimming, biking and running groups. Once you join you are part of our whanau!

Tri HB has a wonderful team of volunteers that help marshal at events, transport gear, set up transition and race courses, maintain equipment, pack registration bags and so much more. Check out the volunteer tab for more information.

Triathlon Hawke's Bay named the Zeelandt Brewery Grassroots Club of the Year

Awarded for outstanding contribution by a club by way of providing playing opportunities and facilities that allow members to prosper. 

Member Testimonials

I just wanted to pass on a big thank you for the event on Sunday. Whilst I am not a member, I have done a couple of your events over the last few years and I am always taken with how welcoming and friendly you guys always are.

The events are professionally managed from the online information, the actual course set up and the results info that comes out after the race.

Always impressive to see and a pleasure to race. Thanks again!! 


I love that how no matter how old or young, or fast or slow you are, you always feel supported by everyone in the Club.

I love coming home from Uni to train, race and sociliase with everyone, no matter the age difference!


I was super nervous at my first event but my fears were quickly put to rest when welcomed so warmly by the Tri HB crew. I was paired up with someone experienced that showed me around transition and how to lay out my gear. And they showed me the course on the mapboards and introduced me to others. I forgot I was nervous!

I had an awesome first experience and I will be back! Definitely not the elitest club for the super fast bunnies that I once thought it was! This Club is open to everyone and great way to train for other events.
