KIDS FUN CHALLENGES for 4-8 years!

MetaSprint Aquathlon 2018 reportDon’t leave the kids at home. Now the younger ones can join in the fun with the Kids Fun Challenge events at the 2020 MetaSprint Series. These are non-competitive races for kids 4-8 years old:

  • Splash and Dash: Kids love the beach and running. Here they can combine the two: they will start with a short dash into the water (waist deep only) and then quickly transition on to a 500m Beach Dash before finishing under the finish arch! Bring running shoes, clothes that can get wet, and a fun loving attitude!
  • Super Scoot: Get the kids involved in the action with a 500m scoot around the race venue. Bring their scooter and helmet and they’re all ready to roll!
  • Scootathlon: it’s time to put everything together! The Scootathlon starts with a 500m scoot before the kids hit transition, after which they start a 200m run to the finish line.  Bring a scooter, helmet and running shoes for their first true multi-sport adventure!

All participants for the Kid’s Fun Challenges will receive a race bib and a finisher’s medal as a souvenir!
