Canty Sec School tri H&S plan

The Canterbury Secondary Schools Triathlon is now 1 month away.

There are no significant changes to the last few years with team and individual options on what should be a realistic distance for all (300m swim 350m / bike 9km / run 3km). The run course will be 3 laps of 1km this year which is different to the normal 2 laps.

Please encourage as many student to take up the challenge. We welcome you to bring tents along to have a base to keep students together.

Medals will be awarded to top 3 in the individual and team events with trophies for the winners.
