 DNI Triathlon Information
 
Friday 21st Feb (Postponement Friday 28th Feb)

We hold an annual triathlon in Term 1 as an opportunity for students to participate and challenge themselves. 

This event is held between three locations, Alhambra Grounds, Botanical Gardens, the DNI Field/Swimming Pool.

Students are asked to confirm whether they are participating as a team or challenging themselves as an individual. We really promote individual participation, but if this is just too challenging then a team is the perfect way to complete the triathlon in a supported way. Students inform their homeroom teacher with the option they like best. Please contact your child’s homeroom teacher if you have any concerns. We are happy to help with creating teams for students. 

Parent Helpers: We will need parent helpers for course set up on the morning of the event and as marshalls. Please complete the following form if you can help (click here)

Equipment needed for this event  (sunscreen for everyone)
Bike: A safe* and suitable named bike, a named helmet, sports shoes, DNI PE uniform
Run: Sports shoes, DNI PE uniform
Swim: Togs and a towel (goggles, Rash shirt and a swim cap optional)

For the day, please send your child to school with morning tea, a packed lunch and snacks as usual - water in their own named drink bottle please (bought lunches won’t be available).

Bike Drop Off/Collection:
From 8am Friday morning bikes must be named and delivered to the main field at DNI. Please place bikes and helmets behind the correct sign for your child’s event. Lists will be attached to the signs for checking, we will also have DNI students here to help you with this process. Bikes can be collected after 2:15 pm from the Opoho Rugby Grounds towards the Lovelock car park. After 2:30pm parents can collect your child’s bike back at DNI school outside Room 3and 4. Your child is welcome to bike home from DNI school.  If you are taking your child’s bike directly from the court area at Alhambra at the end of your child’s race you must let Sheree  know beforehand.

*By entering the bike leg we are assuming that your child has a safe and suitable bike. If in doubt we suggest getting it safety checked at a bike shop.

ALL BIKES MUST BE COLLECTED FROM SCHOOL ON COMPLETION OF THIS EVENT  -  WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO HOLD ANY BIKES BACK AT DNI.
