We are really disappointed to announce that I Tri’d the Tri Series 2022 is CANCELLED

The Manawatu Triathlon Club committee have had to make some tough decisions over the last few days, as have all the other event providers! With the Government’s announcement of NZ moving into the Red Light COVID Protection Framework for unforeseen future, we have had to make the call to cancel the I Tri’d the Tri Series 2022 series.

Being a local event, we have the safety of our community, healthcare system, essential workers and your kids as our top priority. Therefore, with the Omicron variant being highly transmissible, we do not believe it would be practically possible and socially responsible to run our event and keep everyone safe.

Whilst it’s very hard for everyone involved, particularly the kids, we believe it is the right decision and we hope to be back in 2023!

The next step...

Please keep up to date with Manawatu Triathlon Club future activities on the website and through Facebook.

As this is a unique situation for us, we have decided to offer refunds to those who already registered for this year’s series.

We are currently working through the process of refund/credit, and we'll advise how and when that will take place, via email very soon.

Thank you for your support and understanding.

Andy, Lenka and Deb

While we are constantly checking for the latest Government updates, we are of the understanding that we will be using the new Government Traffic Light System for the Crankit Cycles Specialized I Tri’d The Tri Series in February and March 2022.

This means the Crankit Cycles Specialized I Tri’d The Tri Series 2022 can go ahead at both Orange and Green Light status if vaccination certificates are sighted for everyone over 12 years and 3 months entering designated event spaces - registration, transition, and the pool.

Children aged 6+ are encouraged enter these areas on their own without parents/caregivers, to keep them as free as possible.

A visibly displayed My Vaccine Pass or a wrist band (provided upon My Vaccine Pass sighting will then allow designated event space access.
