The kids-only version of Ironman – Ironkids – is headed back to Penrith next weekend with hundreds of children taking part.
One dedicated Ironkid, who is making his return to the Sydney International Regatta Centre course, is nine-year-old Brody Hull.
The Cranebrook resident will compete in his second Ironkids event when competition gets underway in Penrith next Saturday.
Brody will compete in the 7-10 years age category where he’ll battle it out against other kids in a 100m swim before cycling for 1km and finishing off with a 500m run.
Speaking with the Weekender, the Year 4 Samuel Terry Primary School student said he couldn’t wait to hit the local track again.
“It’s just a fun event to be a part of. I enjoy riding and running the best while I’m not a fan of swimming as much,” Brody said.
“I’m looking forward to doing it again and improving on last year.”
A sporting all-rounder, young Brody first competed in triathlons a number of years ago.
Since then, he’s joined the Panthers Tri Club and even has his own personal trainer.
