Note to Parents

For athletes, ages 4-7, one support person will be permitted to help the child in transition. A color wristband will identify this person. All 8-12 year old athletes will be well taken care of by our volunteers.  

Our bike course is closed to auto traffic, volunteers will monitor intersections

Kids will run a marked course on the Centennial Trail and back to the finish line.  Volunteers will be on the course to ensure a safe run and clear turnaround markers. 

Safety and Caution

  •  Flotation devices allowed, kids who do not swim well can walk through the water. We will have volunteers in the water to assist.  
  • The short run from the water to transition is roped off, carpeted and supported by volunteers. 
  • Water shoes or flip flops are permitted
  • Helmets are required 
  • Training wheels and other safety devices are allowed and encouraged
