The Wairakei Estate Ironkidz Triathlon is all about participation. It’s about getting out there, having a go and achieving a personal best and having a heap of FUN.
There are two events: The triathlon for everyone aged 7 – 15 years old, and a Splash & Dash event for 5 – 7 year olds.
To complete the traithlon, competitors complete a swim, following by a bike ride, followed by a run. You can enter on your own – which means you swim, bike and run (in that order) – or as part of a team of three, which means you swim or bike or run. You are also able to enter as a team of two. If you enter as a team of two, one of you will do two of the three legs (swim, bike, run).
Note: Elite section there are no teams and you must be a competent swimmer. This is a timed event with time limits on each leg and trophies for 1st, 2nd and 3rd.
The Splash & Dash is a paddle in Lake Taupo and a short run along the lakefront. Children do not need to be able to swim and parents can accompany their child if they wish.
