Our junior course is ideal for 5-11 year olds, but older kids who are new to triathlon are also welcome. We encourage participation, with the focus on safety and fun with the age groups only used as guide. Your child’s race distance can be varied based on ability. Our course design gives the full triathlon experience where the kids get the opportunity to swim / wade in the open water, bike on a fully closed road and run on a shared footpath. A common myth is that you need a good bike to participate, however this isn’t true with the majority of our kids racing on BMX’s, mountain bikes and even some still on training wheels!
What to Bring
Don't forget to bring:
swimsuit or tri suit
a top to wear while riding and running
(or tri suit, rash vest, or one piece swimmers for girls)
Info for Parents
Please note that parents are required to attend all juniors training and races.
All ITC junior races rely on parents volunteering to help with event set-up, registration, marshalling, social activities and packing up.
We require 1 parent per family to always be present at the event. On arrival, please see the race director volunteer for a role.
