IMPORTANT: Entries will be open to children aged 3 and up, but children older than 12 years and 3 months will need to show their Vaccine Passports and all parents, caregivers, supporters and volunteers will need to show their Vaccine Passports to gain entry to the Wairarapa College Schoolgrounds, in accordance with Government COVID-19 guidelines and college requirements.
Please note that we can run the event under the COVID traffic light system either under "green" or "orange". Should the Wairarapa find itself in "red" in Feb '22, then the event will not be able to take place. Please note too, that 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. 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.
