Huddo at home

NEW Norfolk’s most famous son, AFL legend Peter Hudson, returned home last weekend to officiate at the second annual KidFit junior triathlon in the town. The event started at the New Norfolk Olympic Swimming Pool, followed by cycling and running events on the Derwent Esplanade.

Open to boys and girls aged seven to 15, the KidFit Triathlons inspire children to get off the couch and get active in a friendly and supportive environment where the emphasis is on enjoying the experience rather than competition. Distances are specially tailored for different age groups so that children of varying abilities can successfully complete the course and feel the thrill of becoming a real triathlete.

The series is the result of a collaboration between “Life. Be in it” and the Bupa Foundation. A pleasing number of children took part in the event last Saturday, which was part of a series of five junior triathlons around Tasmania. Spokesman Stephen Dimsey thanked all participants, parents, sponsors, supporters, Life Be in it crew and local volunteers from the Lions Club of New Norfolk and St John Ambulance.
