Schools Registration

Secondary Students may enter the event themselves or schools can enter on behalf of students.  Schools will need details of any medical conditions prior to submitting the entry.

Schools wishing to enter a group of athletes and receive an invoice for the group can email Duathlon@aucklandcitytri.co.nz to get an entry code specific to your school.  You can then either enter each student or have them enter themselves with one invoice coming back through the school (with this code only) .  The school will receive an invoice and no payment is needed via the portal. 
Note: all athletes need to be entered through the online registration process to ensure that all information is correct.

Note: If you are entering the school's event - you are required to have Principals permission, this template or the text may assist in this process.
