This aquathlon has become one of the most sought-after entries in the city with the event selling out at 1 000 children annually. The event, consists of a 100 metre swim and 1.2km run starting at McArthur’s Pool and Leisure Centre. It finishes at Hobie Beach seeing athletes aged between 6 and 13 along the same red carpet and finish line that the IRONMAN athletes will cross the next day.
