Ray White Allens Kids Triathlon

The annual Ray White Allens Kids' Triathlon is about getting out there and having a go, and the event is open to everyone aged 7 - 15 years of age. You enter on your own which means you swim, bike and run (in that order).  Entry numbers are limited so be in quick…Ready, set, go!

 

Where is it and when?

The Ray White Allens Kids Triathlon is held at the Onerahi foreshore, Beach Road, Onerahi, Whangarei (near the airport) on Sunday 22 March 2014. You will need to have picked up your Competitors Pack, had your bike/helmet checked and racked half an hour before the race starts. (there could be an hour’s wait between the first and last waves starting).

 

How do I enter?

Your parent/guardian can enter you online by clicking here (online credit card payment) or fill out the entry form (available soon from all Ray White Allens offices) with your parent/guardian’s permission and signature, and send it back to us at Sport Northland (with your cheque / credit card details), or drop it in to Sport Northland at the ASB Northland Sports House, Kensington, Whangarei (cash, cheque and eftpos accepted) by Friday 13 March.

Refunds: all refunds will be subject to a 10% administration fee. No refunds will be made after 13 March 2014. Requests for refunds must be made in writing or by email by 13 March 2014 to Sport Northland, PO Box 1492, Whangarei 0140 or sportnorth@sportnorth.co.nz 

 

The Race

Remember, the number 1 rule is: Have Fun! You will start and finish the race by yourself which means no one can push you to the finish on your bike or piggy back you on the run! Only competitors (that’s you) are allowed on the race course, or in the transition areas (the place where you hop on and off your bike and finish the event). You will be wearing your competitors t-shirt (supplied with your competitors pack) so we know that you are a Triathlete in the event. 

You must follow the marshals’ instructions. They will be the ones in bright t-shirts and vests directing you on the course. The event is organised by Sport Northland who have the last word, so what they say goes! 

 

Entries close 13 March 2015 - no entries will be accepted on the day.
