_The 2024 Tri2BeatMS Kids' Triathlon:
Join the Stickel family on June 8th! The Stickel kids are so excited to be involved in finding a cure for their mom and inspiring other kids to get active. This triathlon was created specifically for children, to foster a healthy lifestyle and sense of accomplishment. This triathlon is designed for kids who love to have fun – and they don’t need any previous experience to participate. 100% of proceeds will benefit the MS community.
The swim is 25 yards across the Shore Acres Park pool, then the bike is 2 miles on a closed road course with volunteers and police officers maintaining rider safety, and finally the half mile run will be on the paved trails within Shore Acres Park.
This event is so exciting for kids ages 6-15 and helps introduce them to their first triathlons with the full thrill of real timing & scoring, the excitment of using a transition area, huge cheering section at the finish line, and loads of volunteers and parents to help and cheer them on their way! The safety of the participants is the top priority for everyone involved, and Shore Acres Park is the perfect place for kids to have a great, safe experience!
