💥COVID-19 UPDATE💥 The KIDS ROCK TRIATHLON will be held on August 29th! But, please know that if we are unable to hold the the triathlon on August 29th, your registration WILL BE HONORED and you WILL BE TAKEN CARE OF😊.
👉🏻NOTE: A VERY DETAILED email will be sent out to all registered triathletes three weeks before the event.
💥VERY IMPORTANT & TIME SENSITIVE NOTE💥 THIS AMAZING KID'S TRIATHLON HAS A VERY STRICT COVID SAFETY PLAN IN PLACE.
WE ARE LIMITING THE NUMBER OF TOTAL PEOPLE AT THE EVENT TO 250.
It takes ALL of our 45 crew members, 20 volunteers, 2 lifeguards, 2 EMTS & Keswick Cycles to create a safe event for your children (and everyone attending the event)
This leaves only 175 slots open. Minus a parent for each triathlete! That leaves only 87 total triathlete slots available!
We're at 80!!
7 slots are left open!!!
🤸🏻♂️ 💥VERY IMPORTANT NOTE #1💥 WE WILL NOT HAVE THIS EVENT IF WE DON'T FEEL THAT IT IS A SAFE EVENT FOR EVERY SINGLE PERSON INVOLVED IN THE EVENT! If circumstances change for the worse in the next 4 weeks, we WILL postpone this event and defer everyone's registration to 2021.
🤸🏻♀️ 💥VERY IMPORTANT NOTE #2💥 If you do not feel comfortable attending this event, PLEASE DO NOT COME.
🤸🏻♂️ 💥VERY IMPORTANT NOTE #3💥 Absolutely everyone at the event will be required to wear a mask! If you don't feel comfortable wearing a mask, please do not come. We do not enjoy wearing masks either...(especially when it's hot) But, during these unprecedented times, we need to deal with it so that these awesome young triathletes can ROCK on August 29th!😁
Triathletes will be able to take their masks off and hand it to their parents right before starting their swim. Parents will then be at the finish line awaiting the arrival of their awesome triathlete with their mask. (and hugs😊)
🤸🏻♀️ 💥VERY IMPORTANT NOTE #3💥 EVERYONE will need to have their temperature taken BEFORE they step foot onto the event grounds. (Temperatures will be taken by top of the line non-contact, one second Infrared thermometers). If you do not feel comfortable with this, please do not come. Note: Taking one's temperature DOES NOT necessarily indicate a positive or negative. It simply is just one of the many steps that we are taking to eliminate any possible unsafe situation. But please understand that IF your temperature is too high when we check it, we will allow you to rest in your car where it's cooler and try it again. But, if it remains high upon your second check, you will not be allowed on the event grounds. If you see this as a possible problem, please do not come.
💥 Please understand that we are doing all of this because we take this situation VERY SERIOUSLY!
WE PLAY NO GAMES WITH YOUR SAFETY! THIS IS NON-NEGOTIABLE.
Please, do not come if you have issues with any of this. 💥

WHY IS THE SCOOGIE EVENTS KIDS ROCK TRIATHLON A MUST DO?
Maybe it has something to do with....
~😃 The non-competitive, fun & positive atmosphere created by the Scoogie Events Crew!
~😃 The awesome finisher's medal every finisher gets!
~😃 The DRI-FIT TECH TEE that every athlete that registered before the deadline gets!
💥Please note that we will NOT be serving the usual pizza and snow cones due to COVID concerns. Additionally, we will have a VERY abbreviated (and social distance appropriate) award ceremony. There will not be the normal “hanging around” after the event for obvious reasons.
This year’s event may not have the fanfare and all the bells & whistles that our usual event has BUT, we WILL help create and foster a safe and enjoyable atmosphere that helps your triathlete feel COMFORTABLE & VERY SPECIAL.
😀THE DETAILS😀 Scoogie Events KIDS ROCK TRIATHLON is organized by Scoogie Events and will be staged on Saturday, August 29, 2020 to help raise funds for the Wissahickon Watershed Association and bring exposure to beautiful Penllyn Club while also providing a fun, non-competitive atmosphere for kid’s to enjoy swimming, biking and running in the outdoors. The Scoogie Events KIDS ROCK TRIATHLON will consist of various swim, bike and run distances depending on the age of the child racing. It will be a time trail start (meaning the kids will start the swim in a staggered manner depending on their age) and of course an awesome post-race festival with activities that kids will LOVE. The purpose of this event is to promote multisport participation in youth, families & individuals. To encourage physical exercise and a healthy lifestyle in a safe, fun & none-competitive atmosphere.

😀PACKET PICK UP😀 Packet Pick-up: TBD
VERY IMPORTANT NOTES REGARDING PREPARING YOUR BIKE FOR THE EVENT: Keswick Cycles takes the COVID situation as serious as we do. They have steps in place to ensure everyone’s safety. For example, they disinfect EVERY SINGLE bike that enters their shop. This takes time! And due to COVID 19, Keswick is quite overwhelmed with repairs and therefor it is ABSOLUTELY MANDATORY that you get your bike and helmet checked and approved and get a smiley face approval sticker on both BEFORE RACE DAY!!!! They WILL NOT be doing race day bike or helmet checks!!! Additionally, there is a bike boom going on which means that should your bike need repairs, parts take time to get, so PLEASE go to one of the three Keswick Cycles locations WAY before race day! You can go to Keswick Cycles!
