History

  • In 2008 we had our first kids practice triathlon at Wildewood. We had three distances, and about 25 children participating.
  • In 2009 we repeated the kids practice triathlon at Wildewood. We didn’t advertise it, and had only a handful of chldren. (We have some photos to be posted.)
  • In 2010 we sanctioned the kids triathlon at Wildewood with USAT, so we could advertise it as a triathlon. We had 70 children. 2010 KidsTri Results
  • In 2011 we had 106 children in the main categories (36 tri-it-out, 31 mini-sprint, 25 super sprint, and 14 half sprint) and 17 children in the Tiny Tri. 2011 KidsTri Results

Pre-race clinic Sat, July 27th

We will hold a pre-race clinic on Sat, July 27th, at 9:00 AM. Meet at the Wildewood outdoor pool parking lot. The clinic will explain what will happen on the day of the triathlon, how to lay out transition, how to do transition, and will go over the courses. This is not required, but is oriented to help any first-timers, and anyone with questions. It is open to all interested or registered athletes and parents.

Race Details

The swim is done in the Wildewood pool, snake style — changing lanes after each lap. The run and bike are done on the roads of Wildewood near the pool complex, especially Wildewood Blvd, Sycamore Hollow, and Cherry Laurel. There will be adult marshals at corners and crossings, for safety and to direct the participants.

Weather

There is no rain date–the event is rain or shine. Of course, the pool start might have to be delayed or skipped in the event of storms; such decisions will be made that morning.

Volunteers

We’d like many of our club members to help with this event (and we’ll have a club training event after it, as is traditional). We’d also appreciate any parents willing to help.
