NO RACE DAY OR PACKET PICKUP REGISTRATION! Online registration will close at midnight on 7/29.
Once again registration for the Tiny Tri is available here. In order to keep our registration costs as low as possible for all races the Tiny Tri registration cannot be used as the first registrtaion for the multiple child discount. For example - you are registrating three children - two for the Big Kids races and one for the Tiny Tri. The first child in a Big Kid race would be full price (either non-member or Pax Tri Club Member), the second Big Kid would be the discounted additional child and then the Tiny Tri participant would be $6 (plus USAT one-day fee).
The race distances/age groups are as follows:
Tiny Tri (ages 3-5): 12.5M swim (flotation devices allowed); 75 yds bike (trikes, big wheels allowed); 50 yd run.
Rookie Tri (ages 5-6): 25M swim; 1.0 mile bike; 1/8th mile run

NOTE: Age groups follow USAT rules which state that racers compete in the age group for the age they will be on Dec 31 of the race year. So chose the race based upon the age your child will be on Dec 31th of this year.
