Canterbury Duathlon Selections

Andy Gibson —

Please read the article below about our selections for the Canterbury Duathlon on March 26th.


The Canterbury Intermediate School’s Duathlon is coming up on Monday 26 March at Ruapuna Park raceway.

Just some basic information about the day below:

Students will assemble at the Sunningvale Lane (back) entrance to the school by 8.00am so that bikes can be secured onto vehicles and we can depart with sufficient time to get to Ruapuna Park well before the reporting time. Transport will be organised once the confirmations forms are filled out.

Students are asked to assemble by 8.45am at Ruapuna Park, to report in with Mr Gibson by 9.00am. Search for the Cobham Flag! There will be a race briefing at 9.15 am with the first race beginning shortly after.

The Duathlon consists of a 2km run, 9km cycle followed by a further 1km run for 11 and 12 year olds. For 10 year olds the Duathlon will be 2km run, 6km cycle followed by a further 1km run. A full description of the course, maps and other details are available from the Primary Sports Canterbury website www.primarysportscanterbury.org.nz Please read over this information carefully so that you understand the course and race rules.

We are in need of parents who would like to volunteered to transport students to and from.

Bicycles once placed in transition will not be able to be removed until the final race has been completed. This is anticipated to be approximately 1.00pm.

Please ensure that you are prepared for a long wait and have warm clothing, food and drink to last the entire day and something to entertain you i.e. music, book etc.

We are required to provide adult helpers to assist for official duties, We are also required to provide marshals to the event so please indicate on the form if you are able to. Parents acting as officials must remain in their allocated marshal position throughout the entire duration of the Duathlon and must also assist with course set up before 7:30am.
