Young guns take on Kidz Triathlon

Some of the 58 youngsters who participated in the Kidz Triathlon at the weekend awaiting the start of the swim leg.

With double English-channel swimmer and world record holder Rick Seirer coordinating the swim leg, and enormous support from the local triathlon club, the 2020 Maryborough and District Triathlon Club (MDTC) Kidz Triathlon was an outstanding success.

Nearly 60 local, regional, and even an international participant turned out to take on the Princes Park course in idyllic triathlon conditions, and with a strong crowd of parents, relatives, and supporters the budding triathletes enjoyed their first taste of the sport of triathlon.

Participants and families travelled from as far afield as Berwick, Welshmans Reef, Rheola, Murphys Creek and Avoca for the event, and with many parents supporting their sons and daughters, especially on the run leg, the event had an exceptional family feel.
