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, racers that are 10 and 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 are not eligible to participate in KidzTri3 Youth Triathlons.
The Buddy Division is for kidz ages 3 to 6, and their race age is the age they will be on race day. Buddies receive finisher medals, but are not timed and do not receive age group awards.
