Katikati College Triathlon

Peter Besley —

The Katikati College Triathlon Championships, held in perfect conditions on March 17th were a great success.  

Congratulations to all competitors who tackled the course which was made up of a 100m metre harbor swim, 8 km cycle and 3 km run.

A huge thanks to the volunteers who helped make this another awesome day. Senior Sport Science students who marshalled on the water and around the streets made for a safe race. We are grateful for the assistance of Dave Hemsley from the Katikati Boating Club who skippered the club safety boat, set the swim course and kept competitors safe in the water.
