We are also running a children's event.
The Kidathon will run the evening before the adult triathlon on Saturday 11th June at 6pm.
By having it the evening before we can ensure club members can give the children the required supervision to ensure this event is as safe as possible for the children.
The event bike and run will be entirely on closed roads in Tarmon Harbour housing estate.
Kidathon Race Start: Saturday 11th June at 6pm
Registration: Tarmon Harbour Sat 11th 5pm
Individual Entry: €10.00
Parking: Tarmon Harbour housing estate side roads.
Event details are as follows:
- The children's event will start a swim in waves based on age and ability. For children who are not strong swimmers there will also be an opportunity for children to do a cycle run only. These duathlon children can leave transition when the last Triathlon child in their age group has left transition after their swim.
- Children's swim will be from a water standing start at the beach area where we enter for the adult open water swims. A buoy will be positioned out from shore and the children will swim out and around this buoy and back to shore. Kayak and boat water cover will be used for the safety of the children.
- Bike will be a one loop 1.78km course on closed Tarmon Harbour housing estate roads.
- Run will also be a one loop 790 meter on closed roads on Tarmon Harbour housing estate road using the same finish gantry which will be used on the following day for the adult event.
Note: Children are permitted to purchase a one-day race licence (insurance) on the evening of the children's event along with entry fee to compete. The child's parent must be registered as a Triathlon Ireland site user to register for the event.
