2022 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship coming to Taupō, New Zealand
Taupō District Mayor David Trewavas has today welcomed the announcement that the district will host the 2022 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championships.
Taupō District was originally set to host the 2020 edition of the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship on November 28-29, prior to the event cancellation due to the ongoing and widespread impact of COVID-19 pandemic.
Mayor Trewavas said he was thrilled to see the district secure the world championship event which will be held on December 10-11, 2022.
“We are ecstatic that as the home of IRONMAN in New Zealand we have been able to work with IRONMAN to secure the event for 2022,” Mayor Trewavas said.
“We had already laid some solid foundations in preparing to host the world’s top triathletes and this additional time will allow us to offer an extremely polished event that will showcase both the Taupō District and New Zealand to the rest of the world.”
