The Bay of Plenty IRB Long Haul is back for its seventh year. This event calls upon the best IRB crews in the country to battle it out along the magnificent Bay of Plenty coastline, as they race from Ohope Beach to Mount Maunganui.

The 2019 event will again be a Stage Race, set over 5 stages, where all teams will all start together in a Mass start, and then race side by side to the next destination, where only seconds will separate first to last when they hit the beach to start each of the physically demanding stage challenges. Crews will have 10 minutes to recover before the next mass start setting them on their way to the next stage challenge.

Depending on conditions, Crews will race for approximately 3 - 4 hours. At each of the 5 stages, Crews may be required to assemble and break down their equipment, perform rescues and carry out a number of other challenging exercises. 

Do you have what it takes to take on the "Long Haul?"
