A whole lot of fun to tri . . .
The Superkidz Triathlon is one of the much anticipated events for the kids and parents alike and again organiser are predicting an even bigger turn out as triathlon continues its huge surge in popularity among the general public keen to invest in an active lifestyle.
Held on the Saturday each year of the festival the 2009 event produced record numbers with nearly 650 kids taking part and held at the ideal venue, Chaplin Park, Noosaville.
The USM Events philosophy is to give kids a positive experience in a safe, happy environment.
The world famous Noosa Triathlon now in its 28th year introduced the Superkidz Triathlon onto the program in 1996 having made its debut at the Mooloolaba Triathlon Festival in 1994 with just 100 kids. The Superkidz then extended to the Gold Coast Triathlon -- Luke Harrop Memorial event which was first staged in 2002 and the Superkidz added in 2004.
Across all three Superkidz events in excess of 10,950 kids have participated.
USM Events conduct all kids events with the aim a of encouraging children to take part and inspire them to adopt a healthy, active lifestyle and encourage them to be a champion no matter what their skill or fitness level.
These events provide kids with an opportunity to swim, cycle and run for fun, plus take home a medal and certificate for having a go. It doesn't matter how good they are at sport, it gives them the chance to challenge themselves, get healthy and active and boost their self esteem. They can then enjoy a healthy breakfast and be cheered on by the likes of Olympic gold medallist and three time world champion Emma Snowsill, former surf ironman champion Ky Hurst, running legend Steve Moneghetti and ALF stars who hand out the medals and some tips for the kids.
