PRESENTED BY TEXAS CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL THE WOODLANDS
Virtual Event: Any Time and Any Where!
Due to the pandemic and the Y’s commitment to safety first, the annual YMCA Kids Triathlon will be a “Virtual Event” only in 2020. Children, ages 5 – 15, are eligible to register and experience the fun and excitement of triathlon. A Virtual event provides the participant all the fun swag of an in-person event, (Shirt, Bib, Finisher Medal, Results, Awards) but now they can choose the location, date and time to complete the event. No need to wake up early, inclement weather is no longer a factor, finding a parking space or waiting in line is no longer an issue. Designed for all levels, previous triathlon experience is not required.
The virtual event provides a unique opportunity for “First Timers” because the three elements do not have to be done consecutively. Each element can be completed on separate days. Once all 3 are completed, results can be reported. Results deadline is October 24, to be eligible for awards. For those that do not have access to a pool, a Duathlon option is available, Run, Bike, Run.
Online Registration Closes October 21.
This triathlon benefits the YMCA Better Us Campaign which ensures everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive at the Y.
All Participants will receive a t-shirt, finisher medal, personalized bib and finisher certificate. Awards will be available for the top 3 finishers, male and female, in each age group.
