lennox-junior-tri-triathlon-U9's

The Lennox Head Junior Triathlon was initiated back in 2009 by a few parents who felt there was a need for a locally fun-oriented event specifically for children in our community.

This event is now in its fifth year and continues to attract up to 60 competitors from ages four to 12 years.

With the emphasis on ‘Fun & Fitness’ a number of children feel a real sense of achievement when they complete the three disciplines. After all it’s a feat for anyone to combine the arts of swimming, riding and running without stopping.

The event this year will be held on Saturday November 30. Entry forms are available at Sunrise Cycles, Ballina and The Lennox Head library.

lennox-junior-tri-triathlon--Picture-609Age divisions are: 6s, 7s, 8s, 9s, 10s, 11s and 12s. The event starts at 8.30am at the Sport & Rec Centre, Lennox Head.

This event is solely organised and run by a few parents who organise the course and race day. Local businesses also support this wonderful event by donating spot prizes.

Every competitor receives a medal and this highlights the fact that everyone is a winner.
