For 7-12 year old triathletes!
Hey kids --> It's your turn! Here is a chance to give triathlon a try. See if you’ve got what it takes to get to the finish line…we think you can do it.
Hey parents --> Here is a chance for your young athletes to try something a little different by putting a swim, bike, and run together in one event. We have designed a safe course with plenty of adult supervision that will be fun for the kids to challenge. The 250-yard swim will be in the river in a shallow area near shore with plenty of boat and swimmer support. The 4.5-mile bike leg is all on a bike path, except for a short portion in the boat ramp parking lot which will be heavily barricaded and controlled. Helmets are required and any bike in good working condition may be used. The 1-mile run will be completely on a foot path.
COVID SAFETY PRECAUTIONS: We will be following the guidelines from the Governor's office to keep everyone safe and healthy before, during, and after the race. This guidance may change between now and race day, and we expect 100% compliance from all race participants, parents and volunteers. We will email the safety precautions we plan to take just before race day.
What: It’s a triathlon that starts with a swim, goes directly into a bike, and then finishes with the run. Once the starting gun goes off, the action is non-stop and doesn’t end until the run is completed.
Where: Howard Amon Park, Richland, Washington. Look for the picnic shelter in the south end of the park, on the river side of the Richland Community Center for race HQ.
