 Type 1 Cycle Team Logo

There are 3 events during 2012 for the T1 Cycle Team NZ.  The team is for any level of athletic ability as long as you are willing to give it a go you are welcome.  If you are interested in being part of the team email me.  We can also provide coaching and advice about how to train for these events.

This team was set up to encourage all types of diabetics to get active and take on the challenge of the Rotorua Marathon.  You don't need to be an athlete, just keen to give one of the four events a go.  There is a 5km run, 10km run, half and full marathon avaliable.  Accomodation is organised for people from out of town and team t-shirts are being designed.  If you are interested, please contact me.  We can also provide coaching and advice about how to train for these events.



After competing with 10 other T1 women in Ironman Wisconsin this year I decided to set up this page in the hopes that I could convince 10 - 20 T1 diabetics from NZ (and/or their partners) to take part in Ironman NZ 2013.  It is a massive challenge and needs to be given the respect it deserves.  Therefore the team will be annouced early in 2012 and training for this event will start a year out from the event (March 2012).  Regular meetings and camps will help the team to properly train for Ironman.  The team will get uniforms to race in and there will be a sponsorship package to help each athlete meet their goal of completing the event and being safe with their diabetets.

This page is for kids in NZ who love sport.  On this page we will celebrate sporting successes, organise sports camps and talk about ways we take part in sport safely with T1 Diabetes.  This page is part of the T1 Teams and T1 Tri Girl organisation.


The HbA1c Club - Facebook

The HbA1c Club was the brainchild of Amanda Parish, who is a fantastically talented Ironman athlete from Auckland. She wanted to see a positive change in her HbA1c and encourage those around her to do the same. The page was designed to make people aware of the HbA1c levels of their peers and use healthy competition to get us all to lower our HbA1c. We have until Feb 2012 to make the biggest change to our HbA1c and the winner gets a prize!
