Schools and students will have the opportunity to contest the 2020 Victorian Schools Triathlon Championships after Triathlon Victoria and O2 Events this week announced the date for this year’s event.
The 2020 Victorian Schools Triathlon Championships will run as part of Race 5 of the 2XU Triathlon Series on Sunday 15 March at Green Point Brighton.
The championships offer juniors a unique challenge and introduce them to a lifestyle sport that builds resilience, improves confidence and keeps the focus on finish lines, not finish times.
Junior athletes will be able to participate as an individual or as a team. Athletes with a disability are also encouraged to enter the multi-class category.
Individual athletes will complete a full triathlon over the distance determined by their age or school year. For teams, each member will complete either the swim, the bike or the run. One team member is permitted to two legs if they choose and be a team of two, not three.
Junior triathletes, who haven’t previously been a Triathlon Victoria member, can also access a discounted membership offer which is currently available.
Further information will be made available over the coming weeks via the event website. Staff will also be on hand at Race 4 of the 2XU Triathlon Series during the Fun Tri to answer questions.
