It's red...so we hit pause.
Following the recent move into the red traffic light covid-19 protection framework, the trustees of the Kapiti Women’s Triathlon have reluctantly made the decision that it is not possible to proceed with the 2022 event.
Our trustees agree that the principle of the red setting is designed to reduce the rate of transmission of Covid and therefore there is no feasible strategy for events such as ours to operate and honour the intent of that restriction. The last thing we want to do is contribute to the problem and put people and our health system at increased risk.
It’s also uncertain when NZ will exit the red traffic light framework and where that will leave us in terms of entrants, volunteers, and contractors, essential for running the event, so we felt this difficult decision is best being made now.
We hope this will be the last time things happen this way, and we can celebrate and reward your loyalty when the time comes. Until then, all current entries will be transferred to (26 Feb) 2023. Merchandise purchases will be refunded and for those who generously donated to the KWC, we will be in contact to determine what your wishes are for those donations.
Thank you again for all your support. We will continue to keep our social media and website full of ideas and tips to keep you motivated and inspired to be the best you can be!
