Kids Events

Welcome to the Somersault Wylie Ryan Kids' Series.

The Wylie Ryan Kids' Series events are for boys and girls 11 years and under. The "races" are short, safe ones, in which everyone is a winner. Each participant receives a souvenir shirt, a medal when they cross the finish line, post-race refreshments, an online certificate, a chance at draw prizes, and a guaranteed good time!

There are no place awards for the "winners", because we think everyone is a winner in a Wylie Ryan Kids' Series event. It is a fun, safe way for the younger ones to join in the fun on an adult event day.

Mom, Dad, grandparents, siblings, or friends are invited to "jog along" (only if they require assistance) with those 8 years of age and under, to keep them company. There is no cost for this. One adult/child please.
Baby joggers are welcome for those who are too young to do it on foot - but we kindly ask that you line up behind those participants going on foot for the start.

In our Surf & Turf events, kids get a chance to splash around with a 50 metre swim/wade through shallow water and then gather their land legs with a sprint to the finish! So much fun to be had by those participating and those cheering from the sidelines.
