KidzTri3 events are sanctioned by USA Triathlon. As a sanctioned event, we must adhere to USA Triathlon’s Competitive Rules, including age group classifications. The race distance each athlete completes is based on their actual age on December 31, 2018. This age is used to place them in the appropriate age group on race day. As an example, athletes turning 11 this year, whether their birthday is in March or in December, will be placed in the 11-12 age group. Athletes turning 16 this year are not eligible to participate in KidzTri3 Youth Triathlons.
There are a few ways to register for this event:
Age Group Division ~ This is for those kids that will swim, bike and run on race day.
Buddy Division ~ The Buddy Division is part of the Age Group Division and will start last, so that the older, faster kids are off the race course and can cheer on the little ones. Swim aids, balance bikes and training wheels are all permitted in the Buddy Division. Buddies must be 16 years or older to assist their athlete in this Division. The Buddy Division is not timed.
Duathlon Division ~ Kidz that are not proficient in swimming can bike and run in a Duathlon Age Group Division. They will complete the bike and run course distances below in their age group. Please select DUATHLON when registering.
AquaBike Division ~ Kidz that are not proficient in running can swim and bike in an AquaBike Age Group Division. They will complete the swim and run course distances below in their age group, and their finish time will end once they cross the bike dismount timing mat, where they will receive their finisher’s medal. Please select AQUABIKE when registering.
