Crosstown Kids Triathlon

  • Howell Area Aquatic Center 1224 W. Grand River Ave. Howell, MI 48843 (map)

Foster a healthy lifestyle and sense of accomplishment in your child. Each triathlete, ages 7-17 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 run along a course set-up on the Howell Public Schools campus. Bring your friends and family to cheer on these young competitors for one the best spectator events of the season! Each participant must bring a swimsuit, towel, bike, bike helmet, and running gear. The event is professionally timed and transition areas are set-up just like professional triathlons.
