Breaking news, good folk.
In their wisdom the Westland District Ciuncil has decided they wish to
hold the "Wild Foods" event on the regular day of the Lake Kaniere Scenic Triathlon.
This is a day we have had for 35 years.
Due to the fact the Wild Foods event will take away our volunteer Marshalls
we have to pick another date this date is the
 29th of February 2020.
We do hope you are able to adjust your time table to compete the
Lake Kaniere Scenic Triathlon.
