What’s it all about?
The 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.
The event is open to everyone aged between 7 – 15. To complete the event, 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 with trophies for 1st, 2nd and 3rd.
Our Splash and Dash is for 5 – 7 year olds consisting of 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.
Ironkidz – celebrating over 14 years of fun in Taupo.
All funds raised from this event will be used for Sun Shades over the school playground areas.
We acknowledge the Tūwharetoa Maori Trust Board for providing access to Lake Taupō to hold this event.
