"GOTTA TRI" KIDS TRIATHLON

Bring your “Tiny Tot” (Ages 3-6) or “True Trooper” (Ages 7-9) for a fun afternoon of kid-friendly triathlon activities!  Event course is modified for age group levels, with each group having their own course.  Participants will run, bike, and get wet as they make their way to the finish line where everyone receives a medal.  Distances for each age group are as follows:   Bike Ride: 1/4 Mile for Ages 3-6 and 1/2 Mile for Ages 7-9, Run/Walk: 200 Yards for Ages 3-6 and 1/2 Mile for Ages 7-9.  A family member must assist each Tiny Tot as they make their way through the course.

 

This unique event is recreational (not competitive) and encourages young kids to get out and get active!  Bring a bicycle or tricycle (with helmet) and wear tennis shoes and comfortable athletic clothing that can get wet at the end.  Parents should wear comfortable athletic clothing as well.  No swimming will take place, but participants will get wet as they make their way towards the finish line.

Ages 3-9 • Sunday, September 23, 2018* Please note change in date due to another large event scheduled.
