TRI2gether is a school-based program that gives secondary school students aged 13 to 17 years the opportunity to get active by participating in swim, bike, run and triathlon.
The 6-week program targets students that are less active and aims to create an accessible, fun and socially-inclusive environment in the spirit of “finish line, not finish time”. Delivered by accredited triathlon coaches appointed as ‘TRI2gether Ambassadors’, the 12-session program consists of one swim session and one bike/run session per week, held in the relative safety of pools, on spin bikes, and in school grounds or at local leisure facilities with the end goal of students completed a mini ‘fun’ triathlon as an individual or in a team (2 or 3 students).
Schools should refer to the program calendar for starting dates of programs, found here.
TRI2gether also provides schools with flexibility regarding available faciltities and equipment, and provides schools the opportunity to structure their program around any multisport variation of duathlon, aquathlon and triathlon event, in cooperation with their TRI2gether Ambassador.

“We would definitely participate again. It’s been great to have a group of girls train together and many of whom would not normally get involved in a program like this.” – Adam Dearness, PE teacher at Waverley Christian College.
