What better place for kids to participate in a triathlon than at the Zoo's Zoombezi Bay in Powell, Ohio. The event begins in the awesome water park and the fun keeps going from there!
Ages 7 - 10: competitive, timed race
Ages 11 - 15: competitive, timed race
Ages 6 - 15: clinic for beginners without timing
CAN I HELP MY CHILD?
Parents/siblings can only help racers in the beginner's clinic. Volunteers will help the racers competing in the timed triathlon.
Swim Course: The Age Group triathlon begins in the lazy river with a time trial format where participants are entering the water one or two racers at a time.
Bike Course: Will wind its way around the outskirts of the park property.
Run Course: TBA
WHAT'S THE BEGINNER CLINIC? The clinic will include a swim in the lazy river. Once all racers have finished the swim, group heads to transition to put on bike apparel. There will be 1 loop for the bike course. If family members/friends want to help, they can stand anyplace along the bike or run course. After finishing the bike loop, all racers return to transition, put on run apparel and return to the park for a short run.
HYDRATION: There will be one fluid station in transition and one fluid station at the finish line. Restrooms are located inside and outside the Water Park.
Can I Spend the Rest of the Day at the Water Park, too?
