Get ready for action…



On Saturday, November 28, the popular Steelman Ironmaiden event will be taking place.

Based in and around the Awhitu Regional Park, the new format provides a central location for the transitions and supporters to base themselves.
Don’t be fooled however by the shorter format this year as the beauty and ruggedness of the Awhitu Peninsular will be sure to test you. With a two week gap between Rodney Coast Challenge and Steelman Ironmaiden, you can use the time to focus on your speed work for the slightly shorter distance race.
Format: 1.3km Run, 33km Road Bike, 0.8km Run, 8km Kayak, 16.6km MTB, 12.6km Run .
The Steelman Ironmaiden is run by the Sunset Coast Multisport Club, who actively promotes multisport in the Franklin district. The philosphy behind the Steelman Ironmaiden is to create a local event for local and not so local athletes. For more information on this event, visit the website at:

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
