Rockman Niue 2014

The Rockman isn’t just an event, it’s a week full of action combined with a holiday. With Niue being just over 3 hours from Auckland it’s the ideal location to hone your offseason training before the New Zealand summer triathlon & multisport season begins.

What’s on offer is 1 Week, 4 Races, 2 Titles – Rockman & Rockwoman with thousands in prize money up for grabs.

The 4 events on the menu will cater for the first-timer to the seasoned pro athlete. They will stand shoulder to shoulder on the Avatele Beach start-line for the Rock-Swim, an 1km open ocean swim then the Rock-Bike will be a 36km mountain bike race and the Rock-Run, a 10km trail/jungle run both starting and finishing from Avatele Beach. The 4 events will be held consecutive days, the first week in November. This enables competitors to experience the course on which they will race during the Rock-Tri , the off-road triathlon which concludes the week. Two ROCKMAN Titles will be awarded at this finale.

Racing is planned for the early morning allowing plenty of time to enjoy what Niue has to offer in the afternoon. It won’t take long to realize that the ocean is so crystal clear, water activities are a necessity along with the many bike and walk tracks that are on offer to busy the day away. Niue is a place to be ‘Discovered’ and there are great rewards for those that do. Evenings are an opportune time to relax at many local bar & cafes which are varied in themes and styles around the main town area.

So if you have ever wanted to race off-shore and wanted to be involved in something quite special then checkout the Rockman and become an Original Rockman competitor.
