Available from February 2021, this will be everything you need to Tri Taranaki
Entries are invited from competitors of all abilities. One person should complete the entry for the 2-3 person team event or the 4 person team relay, and should have at hand the names, date of birth, contact details, medical conditions of each team member before beginning the entry process.
If you want to form a mixed team for the 2-3 person event (not the 4 person team relay) then you are more than welcome to, you will start with other teams of your age group but you will not be eligible for championship points or place getter medals.
To be eligible for championship points in the 4 person team relay you must have a team made up of 4 males, 4 females or 2 males/2 females from no more than 2 schools (with championship points being split between these 2 schools). Your team will be put in the age group of the oldest participant in the team i.e. a 16 year old in a team with a 18 year old will race in the under 19 age group. If your team is made up of 3 males and 1 female or 3 females and 1 male you will not be vying for championship points and will start in a wave after the main age groups.
If you are not a current Tri NZ member there is an additional fee of $5 per individual entry or $5 per team entry.
The Under 16 and U19/Junior events will form part of the Tri NZ National Junior Series. For more information on this series please visit the following link: https://triathlon.kiwi/tri-nz-suzuki-junior-series-championship/
All entries must be accompanied by a Principal approval letter which you can download above.
Online entries close at 11:59pm Sunday 21st March, however you can still enter on Saturday 27th March at the event, but this will incur an additional $10 late fee for each entry.
U19 Schools athletes will be racing alongside the Junior (U20) athletes which means these athletes do not need to chose between a Schools title and a North Island title.
If you are wanting to do a bulk upload of entries, please complete the appropriate excel spreadsheet below(different for the Triathlon and 4 Person Team Relay) then email to firstname.lastname@example.org
There may be a small number of athletes that will turn 16 after the 2nd January 2021 - placing you in both the Under 16 Junior Series and Secondary Schools category AND the 16-19 Sprint North Island Championships category. Please contact Mel Saltiel to discuss options email@example.com before the 12th March 2021.
