Duathlon

Miss Roberts organised and ran the school duathlon on Friday for students who were interested. Students ran, then biked and then ran again around a grueling course. They had to dig deep to finish and it was fair to say that they did amazingly well to finish it so quickly. We are really proud of the resilience that they showed to never give up!

12 students will represent Marshland School at the Canterbury Duathlon at Ruapuna.

The winners were:
Year 5 Boys - Adam
Year 5 Girls - Francheska
Year 6 Boys - Jordan
Year 6 Girls - India-Grace

  1. Thank you Korimako for posting these duathlon pictures. Next time it would be interesting to see who was in the pictures. We learnt what a duathlon was, as we know what a triathlon is. We look forward to seeing more of what you are up to. From Pania, Hendrix, Dante, Shawn at Red Hill School.
