COURSE MAPS

Little T’s Events will provide kids aged from 7-16 years the opportunity to participate in triathlon on a regular basis in the amazing facilities at the Stromlo Leisure Centre and Stromlo Forest Park.

Join our inspiring up and coming kids of the future as they line up with their friends and school mates in a fun and safe environment. Have Mum and Dad and family members watch the kids swim, bike, and run their way across the Little T’s Finish Archway.

The event aims to bring more kids into the sport of triathlon and for them to have their own event, encouraging a healthy active and fun lifestyle from an early age. It doesn’t matter your ability as it is fun for all levels.

All participants will receive an amazing registration pack full of great stuff and a commemorative medal at the end of the series as they fly across the finish line and give high fives to family and friends in the process.

Swim

The swim course will be set up in the beautiful new Stromlo Leisure Centre 50m pool. The swim will be a staggered start for the safety of all kids

Bike

The bike course will be on the Stromlo Forest Park criterium circuit once the kids make their way on their bike from the Stromlo Leisure Centre. A very safe and enjoyable bike ride for all and visible for all spectators to cheer on all the participants.

Run

The run course will be on the world class Stromlo Forest Park Cross Country track which has a beautiful surface to run on and is visible to all spectators to view and cheer on as the kids as they run down the finish chute.
