Description:

The 5th Annual Y Kids Tri is a fun, non-competitive triathlon thats all about getting kids excited to get fit!  Kids ages 6-14 will experience a morning of encouragement, cheers and satisfaction of completing the swim, bike and run event.  Theres nothing like the excitement of crossing a finish line!

No experience is necessary!  Kids are encouraged to train during the summer, so its a great way for family to get fit together.  If you want to learn even more, look for the optional YMCA Kids Triathlon class offered in July as an additional, fun way to prepare and learn about what to expect on the event day.

Kids will be divided into 3 waves based on their ages as of July 12th, 2014:

Age RangeWaveSwim DistanceBike DistanceRun Distance
6-7Red Minnows50 Meters1.25 Miles.25 Mile
8-10Yellow Sunnies50 Meters2.5 Miles.50 Mile
11-14Blue Sharks100 Meters5 Miles1 Mile

The Swim: Volunteers will be in the water and lifeguards on duty to make sure kids stay safe.  A portion of the swim for kids 8-14 will be in deeper water.  Kids ages 6-7 will swim on the shallower half of the lanes.  Swim vests are permitted, and practice prior to the event is encouraged so all kids have a positive and confidence-building experience.

Transition Zone: Youll have your own spot to set up your bike and gear!  Run from the swim to your spot, put on your helmet, and get started on your bike!

The Bike: Kids will bike on a safe course on nearby neighborhood streets with volunteers along the entire course.

The Run: After the bike, youll drop off your gear and start the run.  Youll run on the field adjacent to the pool so family and friends can cheer you on as you cross the finish line!

Date: Saturday, July 12th, 2014, Registration opens at 7:30am, event begins at 8:30 am

Cost: $25 YMCA Members/ $30 Community Members before July 1st

On & after July 1st: $35 YMCA Members/$40 Community Members

Please note that due to the popularity of this event, space is limited and to ensure you have a spot in the triathlon please make sure to register early.

All participants will receive a Y Kids Tri t-shirt, swim cap, and medal! To ensure your child will receive all these items on race day, please register by June 30th, 2014. Later registrants may need to pick up items after race day.
