Who we are

Welcome

Capital City Triathlon is Wellington's local duathlon, triathlon and aquabike series brought to you by Tri Wellington. Our focus is on bringing the tri community a low key, relaxed, fun and friendly event series that is suitable for all levels.

About

Based at beautiful Scorching Bay, we’ve taken things back to basics - no fancy race packs or medals. It's grassroots racing at its finest, and fewer bells and whistles means we can keep the entry fee low making the whole series affordable too!

2020-21

Our winter duathlon season will be a bit shorter this year due to COVID-19, with one duathlon planned for September. We've scheduled 3 triathlons over summer and, if we can get our ducks in a row, we might have another Christmas super sprint and team relay.
