 - You both have the same event number

 - Buddy Up is for short course only
 - Entry fee for the Buddy Up category is $50 (Same as individual)
 - You stay together at all times during the event

If your baby was born in the past 18 months then this is for you.   Swim/Bike then take your baby in the buggy on the final run/walk.  There will be a space in transition for your support crew to be waiting with baby and buggy for you.   


If you feel that the completing the whole course is a bit daunting or you are not quite up to the distance in your fitness journey, don't stay away, join up with a family member or a friend or a work mate and put a team in the Triathlon or Duathlon.
