The KIDS Course:

For course details on the TriKids pod groups, please see the course maps. The swim will follow the shallow waters along the beach and will be safe for all swimmers (as of 2021 swim has been moved to beach closest to transition). All participants must swim, making all efforts to not stand and water run. The bike is an out and back route on the quiet park roads. And finally, the out and back run is on grass, dirt path and the paved Lions’ Trail bordering the lake. The course will be extremely safe.

Safety: Each child is required to have an adult present during the event, to assist with gear set-up in transition area and to ensure a fun and safe time for all. Racers can have assistance if the child has a need (such as anxiety or physical challenge) for that extra support during their event (by volunteers/officials/or parent if signed in at check-in and issued a racer band), otherwise Racers are expected to be able to complete course with no assistance. They can do-it!
