The Tadpoles Triathlon Series is a kids (7 to 12 years) series run as part of the SunSmart Triathlon Series and is a fantastic way to introduce kids to the sport of triathlon. The Tadpoles distance is 100m swim, 3km ride and 500m run, the Tadpoles Triathlon kicks off the day at 7am. This event is all about participation, having fun and having a go so it is not timed nor are there any prizes for places.

As part of your kids entry, they also receive a finishers medal, juice box, sausage sizzle and going into the running to win a kids bike at the end of the season (which you don’t have to be present for) – therefore if you enter all five events, you receive 5 entries into the draw. We have a number of volunteers positioned throughout the course including in transition to help kids get dressed (tie shoelaces, clip on helmets, and help lift bikes etc). We ask that parents let the volunteers and staff help kids, and do not enter transition or the course.
