Mini Tri - Bairnsdale

Wednesday 18th October 2023 from 5:30pm at the BARC, Bairnsdale

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 and adults to get started in triathlon in a fun friendly environment and develop skill and 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.
