The Greater Palm Harbor YMCA will proudly host the 6th Annual Kids Triathlon “Swim, Bike, Run for Freedom” on Sunday, September 22. The event will begin with an opening ceremony at 7:45 a.m. that is dedicated to our men and women serving our country.
This is a great opportunity for any child between the ages of 5 and 15 to become an official triathlete for the day! The distances for the event are:
• Ages 5-6, 25 yard swim, 1 mile bike and ¼ mile run
• Ages 7-10, 100 yard swim, 2 mile bike and ½ mile run
• Ages 11-15, 200 yard swim, 4 mile bike and 1 mile run
The Greater Palm Harbor YMCA partners with the Palm Harbor Tri-Warriors Triathlon club to stage the event. It’s a great way for the Y and the club to introduce kids to the sport.
“I like giving back to the Y, they’re a great organization,” said event director Tony Thomas.
If you are interested in the training program for this event, we are still taking registrations. The class meets on Wednesday beginning at 4:30 p.m. and includes 20 minutes of instruction for each sport with Y coaches.
The triathlon is a USAT sanctioned event. Proof of USAT membership is required.
Participants do not have to be members of the Y for the triathlon or the training. For more information contact Randy Nilsson at (727) 787-9622 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
