Only nine days to go! Register now for the Hutt City Tri

With the Hutt City Tri only days away now is the time to register for this family-friendly event.

Starting from Naenae Pool on Sunday 6 November the triathlon is open to ages 12 plus and attracts people of all levels of ability.

It features a 4km run/walk, 18km cycle and 300m swim.

Organiser Zoe Firth says more than 400 entered last year and she expects an even bigger turn out this year.

"The Hutt City Tri can be as relaxed or as competitive as people want it to be which is why it's so popular.

"It's a great way to start thinking about shaping up for summer or to have a bit of fun with friends, family or workmates by entering as a team. Plus there's a category for wheelchair competitors.”

Check out our website to read the story of two local mothers who have taken up the challenge to complete this year’s event.

Hutt City Tri forms are available at Hutt City swimming pools, libraries and cycle shops, or you can enter online at and be in to win an iPad.
