JSA TRYstars series is set to launch at the Queens Head Hotel, Seven Mile Beach Triathlon on Saturday 15 January 2022 (9:00am)

Calling all 7 to 12 years olds who love to swim, run and bike…

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 spotprizes rather than prizes for placegetters. We encourage participation and having fun.
