Incorporating the ocean front views and vineyard-swept hills of Hawke's Bay, the iconic Harbour to Hills event was a success yet again.
The fourth annual two-day multisport festival consists of a choice of a middle distance triathlon, an aquabike and new event aquathlon.
More than 360 athletes descended to give it a go.
The triathlon, which consists of a 2km swim, 95km bike ride and a 21km run, was won by Lucas du Ross.
Photographer Ian Cooper was there to capture it all.
