Fundraising “KIDS-TRI-4-KIDS”

What makes our events special is that its not “just a race”, but also an opportunity to give back to our community. Though not required, every Participant is encouraged to Fund raise and help other children in desperate need. KIDS-TRI-4-KIDS!! Once you complete your registration you will be sent a personal fundraising website. It takes only a few minutes to get started. Once it is all set-up you can begin asking friends and family for donations. Every Dollar counts. All donations are Tax-Deductible. Fundraising is neither mandatory nor required to participate in any event.

USAT Triathlon

All events are sanctioned by the USA Triathlon. USAT Membership is required. Youth Membership is $15 and will be good for one year. Please register online before your first race or clinic, and bring evidence of your USAT member number to each race. USAT provides a “one-day” membership for $10.00 too! Annual memberships will cover you for both Clinics and Races for the entire year. One-Day memberships will need to be purchased for each individual race and clinic.


Age Requirements

This event is open to all ages 7-14. IMPORTANT! How old will your child be by 12/31/2013? If they will be 7-14, then they can participate in this event.

Example-

1) If your child is 6 turning 7 by 12/31/2013, they are able to participate in the 7-10 Age Group.

2) If your child is 10 turning 11 by 12/31/2013, they MUST participate in the 11-14 Age Group.

3) If your child is 14 and turning 15 by 12/31/2013, they are NOT able to participate in the Youth Triathlon, but they eligible for the Adult Races.

Again, children’s ages will be determined based on their age as of December 31st in the year of the event. So they may be in an older age group than the age they are on race day.
