The 2014/2015 Scorcher season has now concluded. Which means we’re currently busy working on the 2015/2016 season, our 13th season.
In particular we’re quite excited about our 13th season as it will include our 100th event. (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 the 2015/2016 season will include a new celebratory iconic event on the Wellington multisport calendar, a Long Distance Triathlon. The “Scorcher Half” will comprise of a 2km swim, 90km cycle, and a 21.1km run to be held on Sunday 24th of January 2016 (Wellington Anniversary weekend). 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.
In addition to this very special event and as per normal we’ll be holding 6 Scorching Triathlons from November 2015 to April 2016.
We’ll be updating our website as we confirm our strategic partners and confirm event details. In the meantime we highly recommend you mark the above dates in your diary and begin your planning.
Make sure you’re on our mailing list to get first notification of when entries go on sale. We hope to see you then! In the meantime – happy and safe training.
