IRONMAN New Zealand, the world’s original international IRONMAN race, will boast record numbers when it celebrates its 30th anniversary in Taupo. Organizers have closed registration at 2000 entries which reflects an increase of more than 300 athletes for the March 1, 2014 event.

There will be 58 nations represented for the race which include more than 1,000 New Zealanders, while organizers are thrilled with the overall response that includes a record of 487 women.

“It is a fitting celebration of 30 years of IRONMAN New Zealand and of the oldest international IRONMAN race in the world,” said Event Director, Janette Blyth.

“Because of its unique place in history, IRONMAN New Zealand has long been on the list of must-do IRONMAN events. More than half the New Zealanders who have entered will be competing in their first IRONMAN and that represents a fantastic growth for triathlon in this country.”
