>> IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT <<
We are excited to announce that we were successful in getting high schoolers racing in triathlon across the region and have made the difficult decision to no longer produce the KT3 Racing High School Triathlon Series. Why are we excited? USA Triathlon has followed our lead and all the races in our Series are now USA Triathlon High School State Championships. It did not make sense for us to compete with our National Governing Body, so we respectfully stepped aside.
We’ve notified the students registered in the Series, who will still be able to participate in those races they selected, and we have transferred their registrations to the specific race management company. We THANK YOU for your support of this program and look forward to seeing your kids on the race course this season.
WELCOME to the KT3 Racing High School Triathlon Series. We’ve expanded the Series in 2018 to include races in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland and Delaware, providing high school students from all over the area the opportunity to accumulate additional Series points and win great prizes…including School Bragging Rights!
Who Can Race?
Any high school student who does not graduate in the Spring of 2018, or is entering their Freshman year in the Fall of 2018. Students do not need to be a member of a high school triathlon club/team to participate in any Series event. All High School Students can participate as individual athletes.
Races in the 2018 Series
All races in the Series are Sprint distances, non-drafting, and USA Triathlon’s Competitive Rules are enforced. Register for 1, 2, or all 4 races in the Series, accumulate individual Series points, and receive great prizes!

With this sponsorship, we are able to extend a $60 entry fee per participant for each event. You MUST register HERE to receive this special entry fee.
