A unique festival of sport that offers an unbeatable atmosphere. Over three days competitors can choose events from three disciplines and multiple distances to create a tailor-made weekend for their ability or training needs.

Long Course Weekend New Zealand consists of three days of individual events which all sit within the overarching Long Course Weekend New Zealand event:
