During the school holidays the South Westland Triathlon and Duathlon took place starting in Franz Joseph and finishing in Whataroa. This is always a popular event for locals and what a great way to explore the backyard!

Congratulations to Harrison Whittaker (kayak), Charlie Taylor (runner) and Dakota Robins (cyclist) on placing first in the Open Mixed Team Kayak Triathlon.

Also competing was Sophie Whittaker in the Open Mixed Team Swim Triathlon, Sophie completed the swim leg helper her team place second in this event.

Fantastic work team!
