Ti­tahi Bay School set for triathlon

Kapi-Mana News - - OUT & ABOUT -

Ti­tahi Bay School wel­comes all com­peti­tors to its ninth an­nual triathlon on March 4.

Board of Trustees Chair­per­son Sarah Camp­bell said the event, to be held on Ti­tahi Bay Beach, pro­moted health and fit­ness and brought the com­mu­nity to­gether for a lot of fun.

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

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

‘‘Hav­ing an event in which our over 400 chil­dren and those from other schools can com­pete against their friends or just en­joy com­plet­ing the event is a great way to keep them ac­tive.’’

Dis­tances from 250m to 1.5km are avail­able.

Regis­tra­tion is on the day at the ta­ble near the surf life­sav­ing club. Eft­pos is avail­able. All money raised will go to­wards new seat­ing at the school’s hall.

The post­pone­ment date for the event is March 18.

Chil­dren line up for the start of the Ti­tahi Bay School Triathlon in 2016.
