Organized by Kids Triathlon, Inc. (a 501c(3) entity),
this event will attract 800+ racers.It is one of a select group of USATriathlon sanctioned kids
triathlons in Arizona during 2014, and it will be the largest kids triathlon
ever held in the Southwest.
Race distances are set by the USATriathlon and
are designed to be challenging but achievable for kids.Ages 5 10 will swim 100 yards; bike 3
miles; and run 0.5 miles.Ages 11
15 will swim 200 yards; bike 6 miles; and run 1 mile.The swim will be in the Kiwanis Park
Pool, and the bike and run courses will be on the area roadways and paths (with
no vehicle traffic).The safety of
the participants is the primary objective.
Nothing is more important than the safety of every participant. Any time you have 800 kids together there is bound to be a scraped knee or elbow, but we have gone to great lengths to make this as safe of a course as possible. It all starts with a pool swim supervised by Red Cross Certified Lifeguards then moves to bike and run courses that are closed to all outside traffic. There will be no cars anywhere near your kids while they are racing, and water stations, race volunteers and safety personnel will be positioned throughout the course.
