On Friday 26 June, Vector Arena in Auckland was transformed into the ‘Halberg Tri Challenge Stadium’ with treadmills, stationary bikes and rowing machines in the main bowl.
The inaugural Halberg Tri Challenge is a charity event that saw teams run, row and cycle in an indoor sports race to raise funds for the Halberg Disability Sport Foundation.
Open to teams of three, each member will chose to either cycle, row or run as far as they can for 20 minutes straight.
The team was tracked to get a total distance completed across all three disciplines and the team that covered the greatest distance will be named the winner of the Halberg Tri Challenge.
Each team of three competed against other teams including their peers, celebrities and some of New Zealand’s sporting greats to win great prizes, and bragging rights while raising money to support the Halberg Disability Sport Foundation.
The Halberg Challenge raised more than $42,000 and you can donate here https://halbergchallenge.everydayhero.com/nz/halberg
