The Bupa KidFit Triathlon is an annual longstanding event that gives children across Tasmania the chance to have fun and be active in a friendly and supportive environment. The KidFit Triathlon is not a team-based event – it is an individual event designed to test you against the only other person who matters – YOU!
Our main focus is on participation, and making sure everyone has fun. All participants will automatically be entered into a draw to win fantastic prizes, so even if you aren’t the first over the finish line, you could still win!
We encourage all children to enter into the Triathlon – the Bupa KidFit Triathlon is open to all children between the ages of 7 to 15, regardless of their individual fitness level or sporting background.
In past years, we have allowed team entry for events at New Norfolk. However, we have found that despite this, most children end up participating as individuals. So we have decided to keep it that way. In New Norfolk, we will still accept limited team entries if special circumstances are warranted.
To get an idea of how long your Triathlon will be, have a look at this helpful table:
|7 and 8 year-olds||25m||1km||400m|
|9 and 10 year-olds||50m||1.5km||600m|
|11 and 12 year-olds||75m||2km||1km|
Remember that the distances shown above are only an indication, and may vary between locations. It’s also important to note that participants do not need to know how to swim. While swimming is encouraged, children who are unable to swim will be able to wade through the water at a suitable depth for their age group.
The Bupa KidFit Triathlon is tailored to suit children of all ages, making it a fun and all-inclusive experience. However, it is a good idea to get some practice in before the event day. Make sure you check out our Training Program for some great tips on how to be completely ready for your Triathlon!
This year, we will be hosting 5 events across Tasmania. Find the event that’s nearest to you, and register now!
