Sprints and flags head the programme which kicks off at 10.00 am. Other events include a 400m Run, a Run Swim Run, Surf races, Ski & Board races and the Ironman & Diamond events. Ski & Board Relays will also be held, finishing with a Taplin Relay. Surf boat and surf canoe racing won’t take place at Mangawhai.
