Junior Surf Lifesavers from the Gold Coast to the Sunshine Coast will compete in an exciting race format to determine the best Ironman and Ironwoman in each age group from Under 9’s – Under 15’s on Saturday 29th September.

The event will be held on Mooloolaba Beach. The venue is ideal for our young athletes to test their board, swim and run abilities. The Sunshine Coast’s top Ironwoman, Jordan Mercer, will be assisting on the day, presenting trophies and giving expert advice.

The Kozii Iron Challenge has been running for two years at the Raby Bay Foreshore and has seen over 300 aspiring young ironmen and ironwomen race in a round robin format. The male and female who accumulates the most points in their age group receive the Kozii Iron Challenge Age Champion trophy. This year the Mooloolaba race will be part of a two-race series with the second and final race to be held at Raby Bay Foreshore on Saturday 15th December.

This year will see the inclusion of the U15 age group and will add both numbers and atmosphere to a very popular event.

This format of racing offers fast, continuous action with plenty of colour, music and atmosphere to a sport that traditionally relies on numerous events run over one or two days.

Three races will be held in the morning with presentations at around 12:00 noon. Social media will play an important role in publishing heat times before the event. Photos and recordings will be uploaded continuously throughout the event.

The event is a round robin format, 3 x Ironman races per event. All competitors race in all three races, with an overall series age champion. Prizes include a Kracka board, win a private training session with Jordan Mercer, lucky draw, trophies, prize money and more. Interested nippers can register through their club SLSQ online process.
