Calling all 7 to 12 years olds who love to swim, run and bike… this is your last chance to compete in the JSA TRYstars series for kids, so get on it now!

As part of the Queens Head Hotel Summer Triathlon Race Series, we are offering a TRYstars triathlon format for 7 to 12 year olds. Triathlon South, in conjunction with JSA and naming rights sponsor, Queens Head Hotel, have launched a TRYstars series for the younger athletes who love to swim, run and bike. The TRYstars format at Seven Mile Beach provides a great opportunity for younger aspiring triathletes to have fun and compete by racing on a completely closed road and the beach. This is a non-competitive event so we give spot prizes rather than prizes for place-getters. We encourage participation and having fun.
