Every young athlete should get to participate in a triathlon and enjoy all that comes with it. Join us for a professionally staged athletic event designed “Just for Kids.” Each child will receive a T-shirt, finisher medal, official race bib and swim cap, and will have an opportunity to win an award during a post race celebration. Just like at an adult triathlon, participants will be body marked, wear official chip timers and race a course with professional equipment and support. For kids ages 6 to 14.
NEW THIS YEAR: Because every kids should get a chance to participate in sports, we've added a 1K run/walk/wheel course for young athletes with special needs! Buddies will be available if needed.
