The McDonalds Hawke’s Bay Primary and Intermediate schools triathlon is all about bringing all the schools together for a fun filled day of multisport and of course seeing which school is the loudest at cheering their fellow school mates to the finish line. This event is designed to cater to all the community whether the budding athlete wishes to compete as an individual or in a team, the day is simply to be involved and give it a “tri”.
We also have loads of spot prizes to give away including 2 x $250 vouchers from My Ride Hastings and also a cash prize to the school with the most participants on percentage of the school roll.
We invite anybody to be involved on a safe well managed environment and the event is also timed for each athlete to have their own personal goals to aspire to in the future.
