Children’s challenge takes centre stage at NIAC this Christmas

 


12 December 2019

Bigmoose's annual SuperTri children's triathlon comes NIAC on December 22, thanks to support from Cardiff Metropolitan University.

Now in its fourth year, the Bigmoose SuperTri invites children with disabilities to take on a trio of challenges for fun, without the traditional timing chips, regimented rules or scoring boards. 

Hosted at the National Indoor Athletics Arena (NIAC), which has served as a springboard for many Olympians, Paralympians and national sports stars for almost 20 years, the annual event brings children from across South Wales to the iconic centre for a day of fun and friendly competition.     

This year, Paralympian's Kyron Duke and Jordan Howe are ready to cheer on and award medals on the day, but are pipped to the post with the guest of honour spot going to Santa Claus himself, who, taking time out of his busy schedule in the run up to Christmas eve, will make a special appearance on the day.

Owen Rodgers, Deputy Director of Sport at Cardiff Met, said: "Hosting this event is a fantastic opportunity to show that sport is for everybody. We are delighted to be able to gift our iconic venue to this great cause."

"This type of event shows that sport is for everybody, and the best part is the taking part."

Jeff Smith, co-founder of Bigmoose, said: "In 2018, 100 children, and more than 150 volunteers help make SuperTri a day to remember. We're hoping that this year will be bigger and better."

"This day is all about having fun, making memories, and cheering superkids on form the side-lines."
