About Us

RATS Facebook page

RATs was registered as an incorporated society in 1992.
The club runs training sessions and puts on several events every year.
We aim to promote triathlon and multisport within the Rotorua community and to
get everyone involved.
RATs caters for beginners all the way through to Olympic hopefuls.
We also hold a number of social events every year to hang out, eat pizza and catch up
with everyone.

Is there any interest for more orders? If so we will arrange for Ultimo to set it up for ordering once again.

How can we help you…

Borrow some gear

Need a wetsuit for an event? Want to know about race wheels for your big day?
Email us info@rats.org.nz and we’ll see what we can arrange for you!

Wetsuit Hire

RATs recently purchased some new wetsuits in a range of sizes – these are for our members to borrow. Cost is $100 bond which is returned to you when the wetsuit comes back. Great opportunity for those looking to get into open water swimming or triathlon but aren’t sure about making the leap to buying a wetsuit.
You will need to fill in this form and email Rats to arrange a hire.

Physiotherapy Clinic deal

Screen Shot 2018-10-24 at 6.53.24 PM
Physiotherapy Clinic Absolute Rehabilitation are now sponsoring us in the form of a discount for treatment for members and a cash payback for every new injury a club member is treated for at one of PCAR’s clinics. The Physiotherapy clinic has three treatment clinics, details below. These guys have a very good reputation and know what they are doing, first hand experience…

So, what’s the deal? You get hurt and go and visit the Physiotherapy Clinic for their great treatment…, most of us know how to do that, especially the first part…then just let them know that you are a current RATs member and you will get a good discount for your treatment as well as a good treatment!

Additionally the club gets paid $10 for every new injury when a club member is treated for at one of the clinics. So from now on, if you hurt yourself, just remember, it’s all in the name of the club! The committee promises they won’t wander around the forest and streets trying to trip you over and knock you off the bike although it’s tempting…

Check out the Physiotherapy Clinic’s website or visit their facebook site and become a friend of theirs.
