Triathlon New Zealand Suzuki Junior Series Championship
Tri NZ are very excited to announce a new and exciting Junior Series for the 2020/21 season.

Open to both U16 and U19 athletes, there are 5 events across the country to compete at, from Rotorua in the North, to Timaru in the South, there is an event for everyone!

Workshops will be held with topics ranging from nutrition and race specific skills such as open water swimming, with also the opportunity for parents to sit in on a development pathway session.
