The 100th Scorcher and the “Wellington Half”
This is the big one. Our 100th Scorcher. Ever. If there was ever a Scorcher you had to be at, this is it.
The first ever Scorching Event was held on the 25th of May 2003. That’s 13 years of bringing our special event series to Wellington and its visitors.
To celebrate this significant milestone a new celebratory iconic event option has been introduced – the “Wellington Half”, a Long Distance Triathlon comprised of a 2km swim, 90km cycle, and a 21.1km run.
A long distance triathlon event has not been held in Wellington since the early 1990’s making this a particularly significant event for the wider multisport community within New Zealand. Entries are limited.
However since this is the 100th Scorcher, our normal range of event options will also be available on this date as well. However with the inclusion of “the Half” we will be altering some of the distances for the normal Scorcher options. Please have a close read of the changes to the Medium and Long event options at this event from the normal Scorcher options.
In addition to the normal Scorcher activities the Wellington Triathlon Club will be holding champ races (for club members) over the following options:
- Youth champs over the Short Course – (aged 13-15 as at 30 Oct 2015), and
- Novice champs over the Novice course (aged 10-12 as at 30 Oct 2015)
