The Ray White Allens Kids’ Triathlon is an annual event held on the foreshore of Whangarei harbour – proudly sponsored each year by the Ray White Allens team of offices. Open to kids aged between 7 and 15 the triathlon is about getting out there and having a go – in a positive family friendly environment designed to encourage active participation in young Northlanders. This years event was held on Sunday 22 March and attracted close to 600 participants, plus thousands of supporters, from all across Northland.
“Kids enter on their own which means that they swim, bike and run (in that order). It is truly an amazing day out for the family… There is nothing as uplifting as being part of a community day where kids get to be kids and parents, grandparents, sisters, brothers and mates get to cheer, whistle and yell “Well done!” from the sidelines!” said Vanessa McKenzie – Co-Director or Ray White Allens.
Supported by the sales, property management and administration staff (who volunteer as marshalls on the day) the Ray White Allens team are proud that this continues to be the much anticipated annual event it has become. The event is now organised by Sport Northland and supported by a host of local business including: HotPrintz, MoreFM, Kamo Lions Club, and OfficeMax (to name but a few) and remains known as a ‘Ray White Allens’ event through the financial, marketing and logistical support offered by Ray White Allens Whangarei.
John Monteith, one of the business owners of Ray White Allens Whangarei commented that “As a family orientated company we are delighted to be running an event which helps empower the children of today to become the fulfilled and successful adults of tomorrow and we are committed to the longevity of this wonderful community event.”
