2018 is an Exciting Year!
When I started KidzTri3 in 2010, I knew three things. First, I wanted our programming to make a difference in the lives of kidz everywhere and create wonderful, life-long memories. Second, I wanted to provide an opportunity for all kidz, regardless of their athletic ability, the opportunity to cross the finish line and feel like a superhero. Third, I wanted to build a world-class youth multisport company that grew organically and shared the triathlon love through all communities, including the disabled and those that are underserved. Today, I am proud and grateful we are doing just that and continue to reach into communities that are joyfully embracing us.
Throughout the year, most of my time is spent visiting new communities and school districts to educate families about triathlon. Did you know most people have never heard of our sport? I happen to think that’s fantastic because it provides us with the opportunity to create new superheros and be at the very beginning of a child’s triathlon adventure. If you want to help us share the triathlon love in your community, drop me a note and we’ll get the ball rolling together (don’t worry though…we do all the work!).
Make no mistake about it though. What we do is super hard. We make it look easy because we have the best crew in the sport. Many of them have been with us since the beginning, and as we grow, we continue to expand our crew, so you’ll see new faces popping up every season. In 2018-19, we’re expanding to Berks county and the Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania, and the North Jersey area. Do you live in these areas or know someone that does? We’re always looking for awesome team members, from coaches to site crews who produce our races. Sound interesting? Send me an email and we’ll chat.
And finally, I’m super excited about a new initiative we’ve created this year – Local Community Race Coordinators. These volunteer roles are in areas where we have a race venue, with the primary goal of more fully integrating into the communities that we have partnered with. Check it out, apply and let the fun begin!
Thank you for your support and allowing us to be part of your children’s triathlon journey. We look forward to seeing their big smiles this season!

Families Fit for Good passes the torch of its’ School’s Out! Kids’ Triathlon to KidzTri3
KidzTri3 adding the event to its’ 2017 Triathlon Events Roster
Philadelphia, PA – July 8, 2016 – KidzTri3 is pleased to announce it will be taking over Families Fit for Good’s School’s Out! Kids’ Triathlon. The Triathlon will become an integral part of the KidzTri3 roster of premier youth triathlon events in 2017.
Families Fit for Good Chairman and Vice-Chairman, Tracy and Eric Frary, will continue to work with KidzTri3 on the Triathlon and on future KidzTri3 events. KidzTri3’s CEO, Kimberle Levin, stated “Tracy and Eric were an integral part of our start many years ago and we are not only grateful, but excited to merge their knowledge with ours by working together to bring kids the best race experience.”
Tracy Frary said, “The transfer of ownership made perfect sense. It’s been ten years since our first event and, with a new generation of athletes participating in the race, it’s time to pass the torch. KidzTri3 is a leader in the youth triathlon market here in the Tri-State area, and we have worked with them for many years. Their event production is top notch and has earned them the reputation for producing the highest quality youth triathlons.”
KidzTri3 plans to use its’ resources to grow the School’s Out! Kids’ Triathlon to increase participation by expanding participant age groups from 5 to 15 years old, to include younger kids and those teenagers that would have previously aged out from participating. Kids will continue to have the opportunity to raise funds to support The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia or For Pete’s Sake, and beyond that, not much will change.
Established in 2010, KidzTri3 is a Premier Youth Multisport Organization whose goal is to inspire and motivate youth, through the sport of Triathlon, to develop self-confidence, physical fitness and to lead an active, positive and healthy lifestyle. Recent growth initiatives include expanding further into the Tri-State area by adding Camps, MiniTri’s and Regional Youth Triathlon Clubs. With a passionate team of seasoned triathlon event management professionals, KidzTri3 creates opportunities for all kidz to become a triathlete and feel like a superhero!
