Save the date! C.M. Gatton Beaumont YMCA will be the host site for the 2021 Kids Triathlon on Sunday, August 22, sponsored by White, Greer & Maggard Orthodontics.
“A triathlon for kids is such a great way to introduce multiple types of physical activity for youth outside of traditional competitive sports. It also provides a way for youth of different abilities to feel accomplished as they cross the finish line!” said Nikki Hartley YMCA Healthy Living Director and Race Director.
The Triathlon race is for kids ages 6 to 14, and will consist of three events – swimming, biking, and running. Race segments, by age, include:
- 6 to 8-year-olds: Swim 50 yards; bike 1 mile; run ½ mile.
- 9 to 10-year-olds: Swim 100 yards; bike 2 miles; run 3/4 mile.
- 11 to 12-year-olds: Swim 200 yards; bike 3 miles; run 1 mile.
- 13 to 14-year-olds: Swim 200 yards; bike 3 miles; run 1 mile.
The race is capped at 150 participants and all COVID-19 safety measures will be in place. Registration must be completed in advance at ymcacky.org/events/kidstriathlon or in person at any YMCA of Central Kentucky location.
Race check-in begins at 6 am, and participants must be checked in no later than 7 am; race start time is at 7:30 am. Each participant will receive a race packet, which includes a t-shirt, swim cap, bib and safety pins.
