The Elite Energy TriKidz race formats have become renowned for their fun, inclusive and supportive atmosphere. It’s a brilliant spectacle when the aspiring athletes line up at the water’s edge with mum & dad there to encourage them, along with other family and friends.
The event focuses on participation and encouraging a healthy active and fun lifestyle from an early age. It doesn’t matter what you think your athletic abilities are, we encourage you to join in the FUN.
For the swim start, kids will be grouped in their appropriate age categories on the beach at the northern end of Belmore Basin.
They will be sent off in groups of approximately 20 at a time to ensure their safety during the swim leg.
Athletes will start the run by turning right out of transition after completing their swim. Runners will make their way down towards the WIN entertainment centre, running along the Marine Drive footpath. The 7-9yr old kids will turn at the clearly marked turn around point on the footpath along Marine Drive and make their way across the grass and under the finish line.
