Mooloolaba Triathlon Festival & Mooloolaba BG ITU World Cup
Kidz get to 'tri'
USM Events will once again present The Courier-Mail Superkidz Triathlon as part of the Mooloolaba Triathlon Festival program, held between Friday 28 - Sunday 30 March 2008.
The Mooloolaba Triathlon Festival was the first to introduce the Superkidz Triathlon into the three day festival back in 1994 with just 100 kids. This year we expect in excess of 400 children aged between 7 - 13 years of age to take part.
The Superkidz Triathlon also features as part of the Noosa and Gold Coast Triathlon Festivals. Across all three events in excess of 8600 kids have participated in the series since 1994.
The Courier-Mail Superkidz triathlons are an important initiative to help reverse the growing number of overweight or obese children in Australia.
Studies have shown that the obesity crisis isn't just a result of poor diet, but also from low levels of physical activity due to increasingly sedentary lifestyles. The Superkidz Triathlons teach kids that exercise can be enjoyable, setting them up for a lifetime of healthy choices.
USM Events will conduct a School's Visitation and Mentoring Program aimed at 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 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 our current triathlon champions.
