The childrens event will be started 5 minutes apart in three waves with 8yr and 9 yr first, then 10yr 11yr and 12yr next and 13yr 14yr and 15yr last. There will also be an opportunity for children to do a cycle run only. These duathlon children can leave transition when the last Triathlon child in their age group has left transition after their swim.
Childrens swim will be from a water standing start at the beach area where we enter for the adult open water swims. A buoy will be positioned 30 meter out from shore and the children will swim out and around this buoy and back to shore. Kayak and boat water cover will be used for the safety of the children.
Bike will be a one loop 1.78km course on closed Tarmon Harbour housing estate roads.
Run will also be a one loop 790 meter on closed roads on Tarmon Harbour housing estate road using the same finish gantry which will be used on the following day for the adult event.
