Last year we were fortunate to receive support from Kiwisport, and some help from TriNZ, to deliver triathlon to 500 kids in our region in schools.
We learnt a lot from our interaction with schools and had a ball seeing the kids in our nexk of the woods enjoying learning, getting active and growing in confidence in each of the disciplines of our sport.
This year our approach is to work with some schools that we engaged with last year, to deliver specific events and training in the lead up to the Weetbix Tryathlons.
We also know that we have a bunch of people who are keen to join in - like last year - and participate in the sessions we did at Point Chevalier.
So, we've created a new training event - that includes swimming/running and lots of fun, so everyone can join in.
Here's how it works:
5.30 - 6.00pm - Registration
6.10pm - Race One -150 or 300 Swim
6.25pm - Race Two - 150swim/400run or 300swim/1200run
6.45pm - Race Three - 150swim/400run or 300swim/800run
7.05pm - Wrap up and head home
Event Dates: Wednesday 11th and 25th Feb and Wednesday 9th March.
Location: Harbour View Reserve, Harbour View, Harbour View Road, Point Chevalier
The training event is FREE to Black Sands Triathlon Club Members
$5 a race to non-members
$10 to do all three races
We need volunteers too, not just paricipants, so if you can help - email us - and we'll be in touch.
Let's make these events enjoyable for everyone - come along and have a go!
