Super challenge for top athletes. All three full events must be completed and all respective event rules apply. These events are very popular fixtures in their own right and attract a huge array of competitors. Open to participants from all around the country.

The challenges are as below:

Challenge One: The Round the Mountain Cycle Ride, 153km.
14th January 2012.
This provides an outstanding balance of challenge and reward over one of the most unique courses in the world - a circuit of a textbook perfect volcano through prime undulating dairy country with views of some of the world's best surfing coast.

Challenge Two: The Flannagan Cup Swim, 3.6km.
6th February 2012.
An iconic event which has been on the Taranaki calendar since 1916. Set along the beautiful west coast with Mt Taranaki as a backdrop it is a favoured stop for many people on the Open Water Swim circuit. Being a Handicap event makes this race unique and great for swimmers attempting ocean swimming for the first time.

Challenge Three: The Mountain to Surf Marathon 42.2km.
4th March 2012.
A Taranaki event for over 30 years where the competitors enjoy the downhill nature of the course. Starting at the main gates at the Northern Entrance to Mount Taranaki and finishing by the sea at Marine Park, Waitara. This scenic course winds through North Taranaki's undulating countryside.

Individual event entry fees apply..

This Super Challenge has the potential to capture the imagination of the public and those who previously have completed longer multi-sport / ironman type events or aspire to do so in the future.
