The WSTC kids triathlon is a once a year event that takes place on closed roads along the beautiful Altona Foreshore.
This event is for kids aged from 7 years old to 12 years old or special needs kids from 7 - 17 years old and is designed to give kids a taste of triathlon in a safe and fun environment. The events are great for building kids confidence and we have many kids who keep coming back year after year to enjoy the atmosphere and camaraderie of our event.
WSTC and our sponsors Salters Cycles (on Queen Street in Altona Meadows and online at http://www.saltercycles.com.au) provide a number of prizes and giveaways on the day.
Come on down and give Triathlon a try, but be warned, triathlon is addicitve!
We look forward to welcoming you at WSTC in Altona for our event on Australia Day.
