Superkidz tri brings out the champion in every Aussie kid
The Courier Mail Superkidz Triathlon is one of the highlights on the Noosa Triathlon Multi Sport Festival program and this year organizers are anticipating even bigger numbers.
Held on the Saturday each year the 2008 event produced record numbers with nearly 650 kids taking part and the new location at Chaplin Park, Noosaville a big hit.
The USM Events philosophy is to give kids a positive experience in a safe, happy environment.
The world famous Noosa Triathlon now in its 27th 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 10,500 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 bronze medalist Emma Moffatt, former surf ironman champion Ky Hurst, running legend Steve Moneghetti and ALF stars who hand out the medals and some helpful tips.
