The 2015/2016 season – what to look out for…
The season is going to be a big one. Not only do we have six events between November and April we’ll also be celebrating our 100th event in January 2016.
Pre Xmas Scorchers,
We break the ice on November 15th with the first Triathlon of summer, (remember to locate your wetsuit before the weekend)
The December 6th event is guaranteed to be a ‘mint’ occasion.
The Big One, the 100th Scorcher! – 24 January 2016
To celebrate Scorching Events 100th event milestone we will be offering all normal Scorcher distances
PLUS Wellington’s first Long Distance Triathlon in nearly 25 years â€“ the â€œWellington Halfâ€ .
Race day is Sunday, 24th of January 2016 (Wellington Anniversary weekend) – but we are also planning some other social activities for the weekend as well (more details later).
However places are limited to 400 registrations across all course distances. Currently the event is over 50% filled (across all event options) with only 30 places remaining in the ‘Wellington Half’ category.
If there was ever a Scorcher you had to be at, this is it.
There will also be a limited edition ‘Scorcher 100’ shirt (available to order) and a special swim cap available at this event. Oh and did we mention that you’ll also receive a celebratory Kereru beer as you come over the finish line?
And to round out the Scorcher season:
The February 28th Scorcher will be the final chance for the ‘normal’ Scorcher distances
Then we bring the ‘fun’ to finish the season
On March 13th the Triple Challenge is back! Your opportunity to do a triathlon, once, twice or three times all in one morning. This was a huge hit last year when we piloted the new event concept.
We hope you are part of it this summer
And finally, April 3rd is the Teams Challenge,
This is your opportunity to race with and against your friends or workmates. Challenge them now!
It will be a great way to round out the summer.
We hope the above has something to get you interested or motivated to join us at one, or more, Scorchers this summer.
We look forward to seeing you on the start line at some stage this summer.
Yours in training
