Kids Triathlon Series
Threshold Racing is proudly presenting three separate Kids Triathlons in 2014.
The events are open to children ages 5 through 14. The triathlons are offered in multiple distances based on the age group of the competitor.
These races are a great way to introduce the sport of triathlon to kids. For those kids already familiar with triathlons, these events provide a fun, safe environment to race.
Like adult triathlons, these events consist of three main events: Swimming, Cycling, and Running (in that order). Kids start the race with the swimming leg of the event. From the swim, they'll run to the transition area put on their helmets and shoes (and anything else they need). They'll then mount their bikes head out to the bike course. When the kids are done with the bike section, they'll head back to transition to put their bike away, then start the run. The finish of the race is at the end of the run course.
New in 2014: All our Youth Triathlons will be santioned by USA Triathlon. An Annual or ONE Day membership has to be purchased to participate in the race for each athlete. This membership provides the athlete with accident insurance for the race.
The term "sanction" refers to the compliance of a multisport event to USA Triathlon's safety requirements. Safety plans, course maps, and event details are submitted and reviewed by the experienced USA Triathlon staff for approval. This ensures events are safe and fair competition environments.
USA Triathlon offers a Youth Annual Membership for $15 or a One Day Membership for $10.
We will not be hosting the Jenny's Light Kids Tri in 2014. However, our Menlo Park Kids Tri will be benefiting the Jenny's Light Foundation this year.
