Youth only "off road" triathlon" for ages 6-14
All our events take place on a specifically designed closed course, which means there is no vehicular traffic permitted during the event, so your kidz are always safe. Nothing is more important than the safety of your athlete. Any time you have a bunch of kids together there is bound to be a scraped knee or elbow, but we have gone to great lengths to make this as safe a course as possible.
6-9 year olds : 50m swim, 2 mile bike, 1 mile run
10-14 year olds: 150m swim, 4 mile bike, 2 mile run
The Race Course
We’ve designed the TRY KIDZ TRI to be a challenge. Usually by this time of year, your kidz have been swimming, biking and running a lot throughout the summer, so no worries parents, your kidz can certainly do these distances…they already have around the neighborhood!
Athletes will have a real treat swimming in this beautiful indoor 50 meter Olympic pool. Each athlete will enter the water one-by-one in a time trial start, approximately every 5 seconds, by age group. You will be able to cheer on your athlete during the entire swim from the grand stands area!
Athletes will exit the pool and run a brief distance to the Transition Area. Transitioning to the bike course, athletes will bike through campus roads, which will be closed to vehicular traffic. THE BIKE ROUTE STARTS ON PAVEMENT BUT WILL GET ON OFFROAD TRAILS. THIS IS CONSIDERED AN "OFF ROAD TRI". After athletes complete the bike course, they will enter Transition to re-rack their bikes and exit onto the run course. The run course weaves its way through the campus and TO AN OFF ROAD TRAIL. ALL AGE GROUPS WILL FINISH ON THE TRACK WITH lots of cheering from adoring fans and great music as you hear your athlete’s name announced as they cross the finish line!?
