14th Annual South Shore Kids' Triathlon

What is Kids' Triathlon?

Kids' Triathlon is a program that encourages healthy active living, fun, life-long participation, safety, building of skills and the involvement of youth. The program includes swimming, biking and running components. The emphasis is on fun, non-competitive participation over short distances appropriate for each age group.

It also includes a team relay event, so boys and girls may join up with their friends and participate in the portion of the event that they are more comfortable with i.e. Swim, Bike or Run!
