As in previous years, the $10.50 online entry fee gives each child entry to all three events. That works out to $3.50 per event which makes our Kids Tri evenings excellent value for money. This is made possible by the generous support of our sponsors. Entry by online entry ONLY!

Racing begins 17h45. (Note earlier starting time!) All children to report for their race numbers at the Numbering Tent before 17h20 on each Monday. Online registration only until Sunday prior to race day.


Entrants who have pre-registered online must still come to registration (each week) at the event to check in, at the Numbering Tent. As for the final race last year, we suggest that you mark your child's race number on their hand and we will mark their race number on their arms in waterproof marker, or, if you're sure your markers are really waterproof, you can mark both arms. If the number washes off in the pool, your child will not receive a result from the timekeepers and may show DNF (did not finish) in the results. Race numbers will be made available before the first race with a link to entries posted here.

Please be early as we are expecting large numbers.

At Wairarapa College - Please enter through Cornwall St entrance (No parking on site).
