What’s it all about?

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.

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.  It consists 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.
