Ti­tahi Bay School wel­comes all com­peti­tors to its triathlon, run­ning for the sev­enth year on March 14.

Board of Trustees chair­woman, Shel­ley Cheyne, said the event helps pro­mote fit­ness among the chil­dren and brings the com­mu­nity to­gether.

‘‘We want our wider com­mu­nity to join us on the day to com­pete and to en­joy food, drinks and raf­fles and the stunning Ti­tahi Bay scenery,’’ she said.

‘‘Over the years we have been hold­ing the triathlon, the num­bers of chil­dren rid­ing to school and en­joy­ing our amaz­ing bike track has risen hugely.

‘‘Hav­ing an event in which they can com­pete against their friends or just en­joy com­plet­ing the event is a great way to keep them ac­tive.’’

Preschool­ers, open ju­niors (new en­trants to year 3), open se­niors (years 4-6) can com­pete over well­su­per­vised dis­tances of 250 me­tres to 750 me­tres, in­clud­ing run­ning, bik­ing and swim­ming.

For $10 each, par­tic­i­pants will re­ceive a medal and cer­tifi­cate. Reg­is­tra­tion is on the day by 9.15am at the school. Eft­pos will be avail­able. Money raised from the event will go to­wards a cooking room at Ti­tahi Bay School.

The post­pone­ment date will be March 28.
