_ The 2019 Proud to Tri - Youth Triathlon:
All levels welcome. This is a family friendly event followed by a brunch for all race families. We are very lucky to be partnered with Camp Harkness who provides annual use of their beautiful facility for all participants to enjoy this event. Children/teens can discover what it is like to have fun competing in a triathlon event. Event will be timed with 5 splits by “Time to TRI” using RFID timing chips. Awards are based on finish time. Every child receives a medal at the finish line and trophies will be given to the top three finishers (male and female) in each age division. This event will mark the third event in our Triple Crown series. Every child who registered for the TRIPLE CROWN and particpated in all three events will receive a special award at the awards ceremony immediately following the race at the pavilion. NOTE* All participants 11 years and over will be swimming in water over their head. All children 7-10 years old will also be over their head at times during the swim. For a portion of the course they will not be able to touch. Lifeguards (many) will be spread along the route to assist as needed.
