NZ Secondary Schools Triathlon Championship

The NZ Secondary Schools Triathlon Championship was held at Lake Karapiro, Cambridge on Thursday 25th March 2011.

Liam Cullen from Verdon won a Silver medal for year 7 boys. This triathlon included a short, cold lake swim of 150m, a 7 km bike over rolling hill country and a 2 km run. It was a hard out sprint! With nearly 800 competitors racing throughout the day it was a very exciting event to watch with Lake Karapiro being an excellent spectator venue. Four other atheletes competed from Southland, all receiving Top 10 placings.

In 2011, the event will be held in Christchurch, for any budding triathletes who may be interested.
