Kids triathlon safe way to develop new skills

Claudia Baxter

ON your mark, get set, go kids.

It's time to participate in the next Ipswich City Rotary TuffKids Triathlon.

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, October 28 at Ipswich State High School.

The Saturday 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.

All bicycles will be inspected by the Ipswich Triathlon Club members prior to the beginning of the race to ensure that they are safe and roadworthy. All riders will be required to wear a helmet.

After completing the 300m route, the bikers 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 pool will be under the constant supervision and controlled by CPR qualified personel.

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 school grounds.
