For Safetyâ€™s Sake:
Safety is a primary concern. Bike helmets are REQUIRED during the bicycle portion of the event. Radio/stereo headsets are not permitted. Parents must refrain from entering the transition area and the course while the event is in progress. Any parent assisting a child will result in disqualification of the participant. Parents are welcome to cheer from the sidelines. Due to hot and humid conditions that may exist during this time of year, drink plenty of water before and during the event.
USA Triathlon (Important)
This event is sanctioned by USA Triathlon. All youth participants must be a member of USAT. One day race membership is $10, per year race membership is $15 and must be purchased in advance of the race or at orientation. A major benefit for parents is that they will not be required to attend every race registration to sign their childâ€™s USAT waiver. With the ONE TIME payment, youth triathletes will be eligible to compete in ALL triathlons for the remainder of their annual membership. Visit USAtriathlon.com to purchase a youth membership online.
All participants will receive a t-shirt and goody bag. All finishers receive medals, treats and more!
