Now in it’s 4th year, The Active Kids Duathlon for 3 to 14 year olds, is a great way to allow all family members experience the thrill of racing at Blenheim.
The event aims to give all children a wonderfully positive introduction to multi sport. For more experienced, older children, the longer distances allow us to cater for all abilities. We take great pride in creating a safe and secure, child-friendly event.
We run three children’s races per day so that you can plan your day to fit in with adult start times. If you’re adult start time is not yet known, or changes for whatever reason, simply email us here and we’ll happily switch the children’s start time.
The Active Kids Duathlon
Times, briefing and registration
Races start at 10.00,12.30 and 15.00 on both Saturday and Sunday. Race briefing takes place for all children 15 minutes before the start time. The kids are organised into age groups with the oldest going first.
You can register any time prior to race briefing. We recommend doing so early in the day to avoid a last minute rush.
NB. We reserve the right to change the running order and we’ll do this to avoid the little ones having a very long wait. To allow you to plan your day, we’ll send final and accurate start times in the week before the event and you can also check at our desk when you arrive.

“Just a quick note to thank you for organizing such an excellent Active Kids zone at the Blenheim Triathlon. My two boys loved the whole thing – they had been talking about Active Kids constantly since Richmond last year and you did not disappoint!! I thought the duathlon races were very well and safely organized (I have been to other events where there were far too many kids participating and it is chaotic).”
