Junior Event

The Stirling Junior Aquathlon is now an established classic on the Scottish Calendar.

The junior course is totally traffic free, the run section is on grass playing fields ensuring competitor safety at all times. This is a similar course to the Junior Triathlon, which has run successfully at Stirling University over the last few years.

Triathlon age groups are based on age at end of the year. For example, if your 11th birthday is coming up this November then you'll race in the 11-12 age group, even though you'll only be 10 on the day of the race. This ensures that you race against the same people all year through.

Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd for boys and girls in all age categories.
