Blue Lake Multisport Festival 2018

Mark it in your diary. Auckland Anniversary Weekend 27th & 28th January 2018.
There’s something for everyone.

Brick Sessions

Starting Monday 25 September.
After a few years break we are bringing these back so you can start getting those transitions and that awesome quad burn under control before the pointy end of the season.

These sessions are open for members and those considering joining us this summer season. You’ll need to bring your bike, wind trainer and running gear for an “at your own pace” session that will be lots of fun!

RATS Events Calendar

We have summarised upcoming events and training sessions into one handy calendar. We will keep this updated throughout the course of the year.


The club is now on Instagram. Give the account a follow AND when you’re uploading your own relevant pics, use the hashtag #ratsrotorua

RATs Strava Club

We have set up a club on Strava – request to join! It is a good way to find other training partners or see where others RATs are running and riding to get some inspiration – and also we will be running a few Strava challenges for members over the off-season to keep you motivated.
