Try a tri and help school

Home > Events > BCU Coffs Tri > News

Entries are flooding in for the bcu Coffs Kids TRI on March 4 from local primary school students eager to take out the Scoot for Schools Challenge.

Leading the charge are St Augustine’s and Kororo Primary Schools, with Bishop Druitt College, Christian Community and Sandy Beach Primary schools not far behind.

With just over two weeks until entries close, time is running out to register and be in contention to win sporting equipment for your school.

Event Manager Alison Fidge said, “It’s great to see so many school kids getting behind the event and challenging themselves to do a triathlon.”

The Scoot for Schools Challenge was introduced to the bcu Coffs TRI this year to encourage kids to get outdoors and do something healthy in their local community. It is open to primary school children in Grafton and the Coffs Coast.

There is a total of $3,500 in sports vouchers to be awarded to the four schools with the highest number of participants as a percentage of school size. So, as long as you register for one of the events in the bcu Coffs KIDS Tri on Saturday March 4, your school has every chance of winning.

The bcu Coffs Kids TRI has events for kids aged 6-14 with all swims and wades held in the shallow waters of the Jetty Beach supervised by qualified surf lifesavers. The cycle and run legs are on closed roads making it very safe for the youngsters.

The bcu mascot Scoot will be there to high five the kids as they make their way around the course and present them with finisher’s medals as they cross the line.

“All entrants in the bcu Coffs Kids TRI also receive an event T-shirt and a $20 voucher to redeem at bcu so it really is great value for money. Not to mention the sense of achievement they will get as they cross the finish line,” said Alison.

Also up for grabs are some amazing random draw prizes for anyone taking part, including a brand new road bike and sporting equipment.

Primary school children are encouraged to take part in the bcu Coffs Kids TRI not only to help their school but also to do something fun and active in their community. All proceeds from the event are distributed to local charities and community groups who assist with the running of the event.
