ON your mark, get set, go kids.

The next Ipswich City Rotary TuffKids Triathlon is on Sunday morning.

Past TuffKids events have proven popular, giving young people the chance to try triathlons in a safe, supportive environment.

The next opportunity is on Sunday at Ipswich State High School. Competition is from 7am after registration from 6.30am.

Race start times will be by age category.

The TuffKids Triathlon event is being organised by the Ipswich City Rotary Club, with assistance from members of the Ipswich Hospital Foundation and the Ipswich Triathlon Club.

The bike leg will be conducted around a 300m bitumen road and a number of circuits depending on the class level.

After completing the 300m route, the competitors will dismount on the road and walk their bikes to a holding area. In this area competitors will either tag a team member or if competing individually, run to the pool area over a grassed and up a slope covered with an all weather matting.

The swim leg will be conducted in is a 25m, eight lane pool that is divided by lane ropes to separate swimmers.

The third leg of the race will be held on a flat circuit that will be marked by witches hats.

Competitors will run the 300m circuit, completing the race on the same oval.

A water station will be placed between the bicycle circuit and the running oval. All legs of the race will be conducted within the school grounds. Traffic and parking will be in a separate area that will be under control of nominated members.
