Distances determined by Triathlon Australia Note: Only 50 kids are able to participate in each race and preference will be given to Club Members


Illawarra Triathlon Club is proud to support our young members with a Duathlon or Triathlon event planned for each month over the season. The Kids' events are all non-competitive and distances are age-determined in line with Triathlon Australia Junior Event rules. The maximum distances for each age-group are designed to protect young athletes so it will not be possible for children to compete beyond their age group.

Our venue at Secondary College in Port Kembla is ideal for the 5-11 year age groups but older kids who are 12 or 13 years old and new to Triathlon are also welcome. The design of our Kids course means that they are never running or riding on a public road and the swim/wade is in the ocean and always dependant on conditions. However this area is also a public park and a shared pathway, so we need to respect the local swimmers, riders, runners and visitors while using the area. We have a very good relationship with the local surf club, residents and council but we need to be conscious of the fact that the area is shared with others.



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 and volunteer for a role with the race director on arrival.


Visitors are always welcome, although a one day membership and insurance fee will be charged and Illawarra Triathlon Club members will be given priority if the race fills up.


Junior members aged 12 and 13 have a choice this year, and (if they are confident swimmers and riders) they may enter the races at Port Kembla (competitive) or they can build confidence by doing the Junior races.
