Noosa Triathlon Multi Sport Festival
29 October - 2 November

Superkidz 'tri' at Noosa

The Courier Mail Superkidz Triathlon is one of the highlights on the Noosa Triathlon Multi Sport Festival program.

With last year's event producing record numbers with over 600 kids participating at the new location at Chaplin Park, Noosaville, the 2008 event on Saturday 1st November is sure to be a big hit.

The world famous Noosa Triathlon now in it's 26th year introduced the Superkidz Triathlon onto the program in 1996 having made it's debut at the Mooloolaba Triathlon Festival in 1994 with just 100 kids. The Superkidz then extended to the Gold Coast Triathlon - Luke Harrop Memorial in 2004.

Across all three Superkidz events in excess of 9300 children have participated and enjoyed the experience of participating and being introduced to the sport of triathlon.

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 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 medalist Emma Snowsill, marathon man Lee Troop and ALF stars who hand out the medals and some tips for the kids.
