Take up the Halberg Tri Challenge! - A charity sports event raising funds for disabled Kiwis.
Register now at the website.
The third annual Halberg Tri Challenge is happening again this May and this year we’ve gone national!
Halberg Tri Challenge will see teams run, row and cycle in a sports race to raise funds for the Halberg Disability Sport Foundation - the charity that helps physically disabled Kiwis experience the magic of sport and recreation.
The Halberg Tri Challenge is open to teams of three - each member will either cycle, row or run as far as they can for 20 minutes. Teams will be tracked to get a total distance completed across all three disciplines and the team that covers the greatest distance will be named the winner.
There are two ways to participate in the Halberg Tri Challenge:
Live at Vector Arena: An event will be held at Vector Arena in Auckland where the ‘Halberg Tri Challenge Stadium’ will be created with a running area, stationary bikes and rowing machines in the main bowl.
Virtual: For the first time teams will be able to register to virtually compete - meaning you can challenge your friends, family and colleagues across the nation – so it’s game on!
Competing virtually? Here’s how:
Compete on your home, school or gym equipment and send us your best results from any 20-minute session from your stationary bike, treadmill or rowing machine. Email a snapshot of the console reading showing us the time and distance covered to email@example.com no later than 10am, 24 May 2017.
Raise funds for Halberg!
Teams can get their friends, family and colleagues to sponsor them to complete the Halberg Tri Challenge. The money raised at the Halberg Tri Challenge will go towards the Foundation’s important work including a team of Advisers around New Zealand who connect physically disabled young people to sport and recreation opportunities and work with clubs, schools and organisations.
The Foundation also hosts the Halberg Junior Disability Games, a national, three-day sports competition for physically disabled and vision impaired young people aged eight - 21 years. Check out the video below of the 2016 Games.
