WIL Sport NZ Schools Triathlon Champs

We’re excited to announce that 2021 event will feature the WIL Sport NZ Schools Triathlon Championships, held alongside the New Plymouth ITU Triathlon World Cup at Ngāmotu Beach. 

A chance for School Students to have some fun on the blue carpet, race with their friends and compete for national championship titles in either the Triathlon or the 4 person team relay, or both!  

The Schools Championships event is open to athletes from year 7 through to U19, as at 1 January 2021.  

Entries will be taken online from 1 November 2020 - note that principle approval is required prior to arriving at the event.

We can’t think of a better way to kick off the festival than with this high-energy event of undeniable talent! Spectators can enjoy this, and all other events up close and free, or through our live streaming here.

Entry Information

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.
