Description

The Cereal City Triathlon Series is a virtual series that encourages kids to practice each sport in a non-threatening environment on their own time at their desired location. Kids will complete a separate swim, bike and run and report each one electronically. They will receive a piece to a puzzle-like medal for each event completed.

The Cereal City KIDS Triathlon is a non-timed triathlon geared specifically for kids ages 4-13. Kids will swim, bike and run within and around Willard Beach Park. All participants will receive a completion medal, a t-shirt and swim cap.

Up to 50 scholarships are now available for the Cereal City KIDS Triathlon event, thanks to the Cereal City Triathlon. Nominate a child you know who would love to have the opportunity to experience the event but may have a financial obstacle in the way! CLICK HERE to nominate a child.

Swim

The swim portion of the kids triathlon series should be at least 100 to 200 yds. You may do more depending on ability level. As mentioned, this series is to encourage fun, healthy and active lifestyles, not to judge anyone on their distance and/or time. A good way to measure distance is to pace it out from the beach, or measure pool length to determine number of laps needed.  

Cereal City Athletics will be present at the Goguac Lake Swim on July 14. This event offers a 200m kids event. As a series participant, if you will be automatically signed up for this event unless you opt for the virtual swim event. Medals will be passed out after the event at the Cereal City Athletics tent. 

The swim portion of the series should be completed by July 22rd. (You may receive your swim medal on-site if participating in the Goguac Lake Swim).

Cereal City KIDS Triathlon

The Cereal City KIDS Triathlon will take place on Saturday, August 25 at 9 am at Willard Beach in Battle Creek, MI. There will be two course options to choose from based on ability level, not age. This event is a fun, untimed event. Our goal is to promote healthy, active kids and develop a love of multi-sport events. Parents are more than welcome to time their own children for those that have a competitive drive. Before the event, please practice with your children each of the three diciplines (swim, bike, and run) as well as transitioning from one event to the other (I.E. putting socks and shoes on wet feet, taking off helmets, etc.) 

Children will be able to choose from the following two course options depending on ability, not age. You do not need to commit to the course option until the day of the event. 

Course Options:

Course 1 will consist of a 100m swim, a 1 mile ride and a .5 mile run

Course 2 will consist of a 150m swim, a 1.5 mile bike and a 1 mile run

 

*Virtual option available as well. Virtual triathlon must be completed by September 5th. Submit completion information for virtual events HERE.
