Entrants to the Maserati BIG5Jnr will enjoy a one-stop registration process for all five events as well as prize givings after each stage and an overall awards ceremony. By entering you only need to complete one online entry, this will give you entry into all five events and you therefore DO NOT NEED TO ENTER ANY OF THE EVENTS INDIVIDUALLY.
An exciting development in the Maserati BIG5Jnr competition this year sees the introduction of a choice day on the first weekend.
By popular demand, Maserati BIG5Jnrs in both age categories (12-15 and 16-19 years) will have the option of competing in a 400m open water swim, please note that wetsuits will be compulsory for this particular event.
And to open up the field to aspiring duathletes we have included the Momentum Knysna Cycle Tour 50km Road Race as the third option for the Sunday.
The Maserati BIG5Jnr champion will be determined by means of a points system, similar to that of the Maserati BIG5Lite where your position within your race determines the points you earn. A formular for the choice event on the Sunday ensures that all athletes compete for points on a level playing field.
Your Maserati BIG5Jnr entry fee includes the following benefits:
Your age as at 31st December 2017 will determine which age category you should participate in.
