2014 Kid's Legacy Triathlon:
Triathlon is one of the fastest-growing sports in the world, and kids triathlons are a vital part of this trend. There is no better way for any child to experience the benefits of a healthy lifestyle focused on daily exercise and good nutrition.
Every triathlon consists of 4 components swimming, biking, running and transitions. At the Kids Legacy Tri, kids will only race against other kids in their same age group. We will utilize a time trial start in The Club at Spindletop, 8-lane pool meaning each racer will enter the pool one at a time. As they complete their swim, they will get out of the pool, and jog down to the transition area to begin the bike portion of the race. After completing their ride on the Legacy Trail (an out and back), they will reenter transition, drop-off their bike and exit onto the run course. The run is the final portion of the race. Computerized timing chips are used to track each participant throughout each part of the race. Below are the actual race distances for each of the age groups.
6-8 years: 50-meter swim, 1 mile bike, 500 yards run
9-10 years: 100 meter swim, 2-mile bike, half mile run
11-12 years:150-meter swim, 4 mile bike, 1 mile run
13-14 years: 200-meter swim, 5-mile bike, and 1.5 mile run
