Kid’s Triathlon

Our Kids Triathlon is scheduled to be held on Saturday, May 19th which is National Kids to Parks Day and Bike Week! The event is the perfect introduction to the world of triathlon races for children ages 4 to 14. The swim will take place at the Alf Sorensen Community Center Pool, 1400 Baring Blvd., followed by the bike and run courses. Events are offered in multiple distances based on the age group of the competitor. The focus of the event is to provide a triathlon experience in a non-competitive and FUN atmosphere. The races will NOT be timed. Check in time on race day is 7:30 a.m. for ALL groups.

The entry fee is $35 which includes a T-shirt, race bag, and participatory medal.

There will be a pre-race training held on May 12, 2018 at 9:00 a.m. This is your chance to look at the course and see how the event will run. Race bags can be picked up at this time as well.
