Allcomers welcome to triathlon
The Pia-Cow Triathlon is for both individuals and teams from age 6 to adult.
The event, taking place at the Morrinsville Recreation Grounds on March 14, has been organised to provide everyone from across the Matamata-Piako district a local low cost triathlon opportunity.
It also aims to bring in businesses through the Herd Mentality category, a team challenge sponsored by Telfer Young.
Sport Waikato MatamataPiako district co-ordinator Lou Beer said if your work place has a normal mix of people, then it is very likely there have been several conversations around a New Year resolution to get fit, and this could be the ideal motivation.
Beer also encourages businesses to challenge each other to take part.
Whilst the triathlon was initially focussed on juniors, the organising committee has included an individual novice adult event for Mad Cows and Raging Bulls Distances are a 300m pool swim, 9km road cycle leg and a 3.2km run to finish.
Entries are open until March 8 but numbers are capped so head to www.enteronline.co.nz.
Following the triathlon, Beer has also been preparing for the 12th ECHO Walking Festival commencing on March 21. Guided walks include the Tahu track to Katikati, Wairere to Te Tuhi and a Fern Family Fun Fay at the Waiorongomai Valley.
Registrations for these and many other walks and activities are open at www. echowalkfest.org.nz or pick up a pamphlet from the i-Site.
