The Bairnsdale Mini Triathlon series runs from October until March each Wednesday evening at the Bairnsdale Aquatic and Recreation Centre. It's a great way for both kids & adults to get started in triathlon in a fun friendly environment and develop skill & fitness over the series.
How does it work?
Mini Tri's are for everyone regardless of age and experience. It is a perfect way to learn about the sport and receive free coaching in a fun and friendly environment.
Mini Tri’s are not a race as such but there is a competitive challenge attached which is all about personal development and improvement. You race your own best time. Your first race establishes a Personal Best(PB). Points are awarded after each race based on your performance against this time. Find out more about the Mini Triathlon Points system here.
Come join us for a bit of fun, it's as serious as you want to make it. There are plenty of members to help you out and give you tips, so don't be shy.
