Aquathlon launches Phuket's Superkidz race series

TRIATHLON: The first races in the multi-sport Thanyapura Superkidz Triathlon series, presented by Class Act Media, were held in Phuket on Saturday (June 8).

The first races in the multi-sport Thanyapura Superkidz Triathlon series, presented by Class Act Media, were held in Phuket on Saturday (June 8).

More than 80 children and a handful of adults competed on the running and swimming course at the Thanyapura Sports and Leisure Club (TSLC) in Thalang district. 

The inaugural aquathlon race day attracted young athletes from Thailand, Malaysia, UK, the Netherlands, Australia, France, Germany, New Zealand, Austria, Russia and the US.

The weather was dry and cloudy, but by mid-morning the rising temperatures presented an additional challenge for the young competitors.

Competitors aged 6-8 years raced in a 50 metre swim and 500 metre race; ages 9 and 10 faced a 100 metre swim and 1 kilometre race; ages 11-12, a 150 metre swim and a 1.5 kilometre run; ages 13-14, a 200 metre swim and a 2 kilometre run; and ages 15 and up, including adults, competes in a three-stage race: a 1.5 kilometre run, a 400 metre swim, and another 1.5 kilometre run.

Thanyapura’s senior triathlon coach and eight-times Ironman world champion Jurgen Zack said the first event in the Superkidz series heralded even better things to come.

“I was impressed with the level of performance and the good strong results. It was nice to see progress in their fitness level especially those, who have attended our training regularly, and we can say they are the real ‘super kids’. We look forward to seeing more of that in the coming events.”

The next events in the Superkidz series are a running race day on September 1, a duathlon race on October 5, and a full Superkidz Triathlon race on March 8, 2014.
