The event takes place after the new adult Perranathlon and is a run / swim or wade event (conditions dependent) for children who are members of a surf life saving club/SLSGB – all competitors will be fitted with timing chips and receive an event swim hat.

Registration will take place outside Perranporth SLSC Clubhouse on the beach, past the pub

There will be a medium course for ages 8-10 and a longer course for ages 11-16. The medium and long courses are open to all. NB: Age categories are designated in accordance with SLSGB policy so your age category is determined by the age of entrant at 31st December 2022.

All children are timed over their course and prizes/trophies are awarded to each Age Category (7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16) Male and Female

Please ensure you enter your child into the correct age category as outlined [age category is determined by the age of entrant at 31st December 2022] – this avoids post race confusion and ensures that prizes in each age category are fairly and accurately awarded.

Every club or organisation should provide 1 marshal for every 5 competitors if possible.

Course details will be announced at race briefing as conditions on the day will have to be taken into account. The Event Organizers reserve the right to amend the Race format, change the date or to cancel the Race. The Event Organizers will only exercise these rights due to circumstances beyond their control.

[As usual, there will be a separate short course exclusively for children aged 7 who are members of Perranporth SLSC which will run just before the main event. Details of this will be circulated to applicable parents and children by Pete]
