Coming in 2018 is the Tineli National Schools Tri Champs, which will be the host of the Suzuki National Schools Triathlon Championships.

This great two day event will be held in the sunny region of Nelson Tasman.


Organised by Nelson Tri Club with input from Sport Tasman, this event is open to all Secondary School pupils (min age is 10 years) and is run during Summer Tournament Week in March.

Competitors will be able to compete for three crowns over the two event days:

  • Suzuki Individual Triathlon
  • Nelson Bays Suzuki Individual Aquathlon
  • Team Tag Triathlon


Age Groups
Age groups are Under 12, Under 13, Under 14, Under 16, Under 19.
Age is taken at January 1, 2018. Competitors must be 10 or over.
Entries in the team tag event will be placed in the age group of the oldest team member.


Rabbit Island is approximately 25km from Nelson, 12.5km from Richmond and 29km from Motueka. As there is no public transport, competitors will need to organise their own transport. Accordingly, any accommodation in the district will be suitable and can be found by online search at sites such as Trivago or Bookabach.


An event website will be posted here soon – so keep an eye out for details and upcoming information.
