Triathlon has changed. It is no longer about swimming pools and roads. It's rough, it's rugged and it is awesome!
XTERRA Wellington brings you NeXTGen. The off road triathlon experience for young people on the very same course as some of the best athletes in the world. For ages 7-12 a brief water run, swim and dive, mountain bike and trail run means fast, fun action for all.
We have two courses and they are designed to encourage everyone to be involved no matter your age or ability.
50m sea water smash, 5km Mountain Bike, with a flat out and back 1.6km run.
100m sea smash, 5km Mountain Bike, 2km Trail Run with a hill to keep them tough.
Don't fancy a whole Tri? Get your mates together and enter in the NeXTGen Team event. Or just come along and do the Swim, Mountain Bike or run. We are not fussy just want our NeXTGen to have a good time on the trails in the outdoors.
