Marra Sprint Triathlon
Location: Pilot Bay, Mount Maunganui
Date: March 12, 2017 at 7:30am to: 12:00pm
Once again the day will host the 3 races, but with the Sprint Distance race being raced for the 30th time & a new Event Manager in place look for an exciting event in 2017.
With our signature Sprint Distance Event, being a 750m Swim (along the shore), 20km Cycle (flat 2 lap course) and a 5km Run (around the beautiful Mauao Base Track) this is a great Sprint distance Tri to close your season on. This is a draft friendly race, " no draft busters ". As always this event attracts many local and visiting athletes and caters for novice to experienced athletes of all abilities. This is a friendly event that always has a great atmosphere and attracts some fantastic participants to our local shores.
Of course we will have a team catagory for the Sprint Distance Tri, so if you are not sure about doing the whole thing just yet, grab some mates and make it an outing for you all. It is loads of fun and we are sure there will be lots of inter-team competition going on this year too.
With huge success of the short distance races for the Youth in 2015 & 2016 both these races will be back this year. So whether it's your first race ever or using it as a great build for the NSS race in March it's something for ever child. We have the Marra Monsters: aged 12 - 16 years inclusive and the Marra Minis: aged 6 - 11 years inclusive. Each of these events have been newly created with their own specific distances and separate start times, see the information sheets below. The Monsters and Minis will even have their own area in transition so they are not only kept safe but also so they can line up with their peers and check out the competition!! Above all it is going to be fun seeing so many young people getting out there and giving it a go.
Race entries are open at www.sprinttri.nz ready for you to make that commitment and be part of one of the best events of the season. You know you want to. Get in there and reserve your space. You don't want to miss out on this one!
