KIDS TRIATHLON distances based on age:
Wave 1 Ages 6 and 7 will start the swim portion with a single length of 25 yards (1 length), followed by a 1 mile cycle and a 1/4 mile run.
Wave 2 Ages 8 and 9 will swim 50 yards (1 lap) , 1 1/2 mile cycle, and strong a 1/4 mile run finish.

For the non swimmers there will be a DUATHLON set up similar to the Triathlon. We will have a cross country run instead of the swim portion.
Wave 1- Ages 6 and 7 - will be a 1/4 mile run, 1 mile cycle, and finish with a 1/4 mile run.
Wave 2 - Ages 8 and 9- will be a 1/4 mile run, 1 1/2 mile cycle and a 1/4 mile run.
Not to forget the little ones, we will have a Run Trike Run! Open to ages 3, 4, and 5 who want to do what the elder sibling is doing or just wants to get active in a safe environment. This will be a run through a closed rectangle and then trike around the perimeter of the rectangle and finish with a run back through the rectangle to end at the finish line
All distances are subject to change and are approximate. This is not a timed race, so that all athletes can feel the success in completing an event. This event is Rain or Shine.
Packet Pick Up and MANDATORY BIKE CHECK AND HELMET FITTING:
Will be at:
3pm - 7pm on Friday the 6th of September
34D- Catoctin Circle, SE Leesburg, VA 20176
Due to the amount of effort it takes to check bicycles and helmets it is impossible to do this on Saturday morning and still host a great event. We do not have the manpower to do both so please respect our desire to keep all the athletes safe and see us in Leesburg Friday night.
