The Swim for Smiles Foundation is proud to announce that it has FINALLY opened registration for our 7th Annual Youth Triathlon. In our 7-year history, this will be our first Fall race and we'll celebrate it with an all-new venue and better race course (speed-bump free, wider roadways and fewer hills). The 2013 race will be in the southern part of Chapel Hill, NC on September 8th and the brand-new Briar Chapel neighborhood.

Our 2011 event drew over 850 participants and was the largest kid's triathlon in the USA and it was followed up with a 2012 event that was smaller due to the venue safety restrictions of the Chapel Hill Country Club. That forced us to move the race in 2013 and find a new home for our event. Our top priority for a new venue was safety and nearly as important was growth potential so we don't have to move it again for a while - with Briar Chapel, we found both!

The Swim for Smiles Youth Triathlon has won the Endurance Magazine Award for the Best Kid's Race in North Carolina for three years in a row and we plan to put on a 2013 event that will award us that medal again! . We are ready to accommodate over 1000 kids this year with a new course and even more fun activities pre- and post-race and better viewing for parents!

Open to kids from ages 5-18 (yes, now 5-year olds can participate), the Swim for Smiles Youth Triathlon is a USA-Triathlon sanctioned event and includes two courses for ALL levels of participants. In addition, we have a limited number of relay teams made up of kids of any and all ages (one kid will swim, another bike and the third will run the course -- all relay participants and teams will do the Long Course).

Beginners should consider our Short Course triathlon that includes a 100-meter swim, a 2.5-mile out and back bike course and finishes with a short 1K (0.6miles) run. Long Course participants will begin with a 300-meter swim, transition to a 5-mile bike course and then finish with a 3K run (1.8 miles). The Swim for Smiles Youth Triathlon starts at 8am and is considered an easy triathlon and it designed for all levels of youth participants.

Every finisher receives a medal and the top three finishers of each age group will receive prizes! - See more at:
