After a successful debut in 2017, the Mini Monster has confirmed it's spot in the Mount Monster schedule for the foreseeable future.
The Mini Monster is an opportunity for aspiring Under 14 athletes to take on a new endurance challenge on Mount Maunganui's Main Beach.
Now in its third year, in 2019 we are set to change things up and make the challenge more excting and open to more people!
The Mini Monster will start at 0800 on Saturday 14 December.
The Mini Monster consists of:
With a running start into the swim, athletes swim a reverse "M shaped" course hitting the beach twice before transitioning onto the board leg.
The board component will test the athletes after the big run and swim. Athletes will have to negotiate a "M shaped" course through the surf testing their true skill and fitness.
The final run finish will be completely on soft sand and athletes will feel the burn as they make the final dash for the finish line where the champions will be crowned!
