F.A.B. Get on your bike, dust off your kayak, and tell your mates; the 2021 Nugget MultiSport Festival in Waihi is ALL SYSTEMS GO...
We're preparing to launch entries on February 1st, 2021 with an Earlybird Special that will go through until February 28th.

If you had already entered the 2020 event before we cancelled, your entry will automatically be rolled over to 2021, but if you think you won't be able to attend next year's event, you can transfer your entry to another person. And, if you've won a 2020 free entry voucher, we'll honour that at the 2021 event as well.
Have a great summer and we'll see you soon...

Waihi and Waihi Beach in the southern Coromandel are the impressive setting for the spectacular Nugget Multisport Festival.

You'll take an unforgettable adventure from Waihi's charming town centre out to the spectacular harbour and coast at Waihi Beach, before returning to Waihi via breathtaking trails to the rim of the mighty Martha Gold Mine and our iconic finish line under the shadow of the Cornish Pumphouse.
Along the way you'll ride through quiet country roads, paddle the beautiful harbour and run along remote rocky coastlines and clifftops to hidden beaches. After 'the hill' you'll mountain bike through rolling farmland and stunning single-track before your final run inside the mighty Martha Mine open pit.

The Nugget MultiSport Festival began in 2010, and the event has grown every year since. It brings you all that's great about being outdoors and active, and rolls it into an event that anyone can be part of. There's the Full Nugget MultiSport Race, Half Nugget Duathlon, 23km Trail Run and the 11km or 6km off-road Run/Walk events, so we really do have something for everyone!
Combine all this with the carnival atmosphere at the magnificent finishing arena under the Cornish Pumphouse and you're set for an awesome weekend. Come and discover gold at The Nugget Multisport Festival, Waihi and Waihi Beach.
