Senior School Triathlon / Biathlon         

Friday 21 March at 10 0’clock, the annual Triathlon or Biathlon, which is part of our swimming / PE programme is to be held for all children aged 7 years and above on 21 March. (This year all the Nikau children will take part in the 7 year old races)

Children aged 5 and 6 years of age (this year all Miro and Rimu children) will compete in their event on the afternoon.

All children are organised into age and gender groups (7 years, 8 years, 9 years, 10 and over years) and will complete either a triathlon or biathlon.

Depending on age children will swim between 1 to 3 laps of the pool, one cycle circuit (starting near the hall, continuing out through the gate on the field, up the footpath, into the school near the Reading Recovery room, through the “walk way” by Miro, and onto the court where bikes will be parked) and then one running circuit (down behind the library, then turn right pass Kauri and Nikau and the administration block, cross the road and down North Ave, right into Turnbull, right into Vauxhall then right into Morrison and finally in the top car park gate and onto the grass where the finishing line is.

Children will compete in heats of four. All children will be timed and have their time recorded. At the end of the event the child with the fastest time will be the winner of the age group. Certificates will be awarded to the first four in each age group.

If children are competing in a biathlon, they will follow the course minus the biking leg.

We desperately need helpers for timing, bike transition, bike marshals, road crossing and standing on the corners on the roads to support the competitors as they run.

If you are able to help please fill in the form below and return to the office by Monday 17 March.

Thanks, Carol
