The event centre is at Kawakawa Bay on the edge of the Hauraki Gulf, 17km east of Clevedon. Kawakawa Bay is well known to many previous Ironman New Zealand competitors when the race was held in Auckland. The cycle leg is almost entirely on the old Ironman course. The run leg is along a spectacular piece of foreshore with sea views the entire way, and the majority of the run under Pohutukawa trees which will provide perfect protection on a hot sunny day.

Attendance of Race Briefing is compulsory. Race Briefing 7:45am at Maraetai Beach.
