Triathlon Begins: 9:00am
Foster a healthy lifestyle and sense of accomplishment in your child. Each triathlete, ages 7-14 will swim, bike, and run to compete in this enjoyable, low-key athletic event that emphasizes health, self-esteem, self-confidence, and fun in a safe, family-friendly environment. We'll begin the triathlon in waves by age group in the indoor pool, then bike along the Crosstown Trail, and un along a course set-up on the Howell Public Schools campus. Bring friends and family to come cheer on these young competitors for one of the best spectator events of this season! The event is professionally timed and transition areas are set-up just like professional triathlons. We recognize the 1st-3rd place finishers in each age and gender category, but all participants will walk away with a ribbon around their neck and a huge feeling of accomplishment. Age divisions are based on child's age as of date of the event. Age divisions and distances can be found below. Each participant must bring a swimsuit, towel, bike, bike helmet, and running gear.
