The course consists of three events: Swimming (indoor pools will do), biking, and running. Try a 500 m swim, 6 km run and a 20 km bike route.
Consider the skill level of your participants and allow for single and double teams in junior, senior, and staff divisions. Invite other schools in your area to participate. Interesting staff challenges can occur between rival schools. Each team should have a staff member available to coach and co-ordinate team efforts. You will find that a well coordinated pit crew will do wonders for a team’s organization and morale on race day. Hold a BBQ and awards presentation where the course finishes.
