ELIGIBILITY

This event is for children of ALL abilities aged 8 – 16 (born between 2004 – 2012).

RACE DISTANCES & FORMATS

The event consists of two different event formats;

  1. Draft Legal Races for those that wish to take part in the South Central Series – One of the I.R.C. Open Water Races.
  2. Non drafting events for those that want to have a more relaxed environment – including those who want to try triathlon for the first time

The drafting events are IRC qualifying events and children will be allowed to draft (ride in a tight line/group with other competitors). There will also be gear restrictions for these events.

For those not interested in entering the IRC events we have on offer traditional non-drafting events. In these events the children are not allowed to draft and should cycle at least 10 metres behind the next person in front. This allows for a more relaxed and fun racing experience for those taking part.

All ages shown are as per 31st December 2020.
