The 2022 Super Saturday program is bigger and better than ever!
Featuring Yeppoon’s first-ever junior and all-abilities triathlon events. Best of all, these events will be front and centre in the Yeppoon CBD where family and spectators can immerse themselves in the excitement of the event and make lots of noise to encourage participants.
Saturday’s program consists of:
- Enticer Triathlon/Duathlon (12yrs +)
- Junior Triathlon/Duathlon (7-14yrs)
- All-ability Duathlon (Open)
- Junior Novelty Event (3-8yrs)
About THE ENTICER
The enticer is an introductory event for newcomers and those just not ready for the sprint distance. The course is user friendly, participation is more important than style and speed and there will be lots of encouragement to bring you home with a smile.
About Junior Triathlon/Dualthlon
The junior triathlon/duathlon is a non-competitive event but has all the elements of a race experience, with fully functional transition, race briefings, officials on course and of course, the cheering support.
This event is available to participants of all ages with a disability. Participants may register as “unassisted” or “assisted”, the latter meaning that there will be a responsible able-bodied adult (18yrs +) on course to remain with the participant throughout the event, including the swim and bike (on bike or foot) legs.
Unassisted athletes need not be accompanied but should have a supervising adult to provide general participant observation.

About the Novelty Event
Returning for its fourth year, this is a novelty event for ages 3-8. It is a timed event that involves running and cycling/scooting and includes, for the very young and their nervous parents, an assisted event where a responsible adult may accompany the participant on the course. For the kids, this event is about having fun, expending energy and feeling special. For the spectators, this event is about not taking life too seriously and remembering what it means to be young.
