A one-day race license allows an athlete to compete in those races that have licenses (Ironman, Challenge and POT Half) without needing to purchase an annual membership.

Joining a club is a great way to become part of your local triathlon community, with many clubs around NZ offering training sessions and local events.  Some clubs also offer, or subsidise TRIBE membership as part of their club membership.

 

Please note: Club membership alone does not waive the one-day race license.

Membership fees (either one-day or annual) are used for the development and sustainability of the Triathlon New Zealand Community Programme.
