6 mile bike ride (11 laps around the Memorial Park block) and then
2.5 km (1.6 mile) run (3 laps around the block)
The “Super Youth” race for kids ages 7-10 is a short course roughly 1/3rd the length of the main course:
70 meter (75 yard) pool swim (3 length) followed by
2.5 km (1.6 mile) bike ride (3 laps) and then
1 km (0.6 mile) run (1 laps)

The Albany community triathlon (AlbanyTri.com) is a fundraiser for the Albany Athletics Boosters — a 501(c)3 non-profit organization raising funds for both high school & middle school athletic programs. Starting in 2008 on the centennial of the City of Albany, CA, the AlbanyTri has been held annually except for 2010 & 2011 when the pool underwent a major renovation. The triathlon aims to promote fitness in the community and showcase just how fun a multisport event can be!
The main AlbanyTri super sprint course is open to everyone ages 9 and up, especially those who’ve never done a triathlon before but would like to give it a go on an easy, local course without a huge financial (or training) commitment. A mini version of the course is available for the "Super Youths" ages 7-10.
The event is part of Albany Local Week, celebrating the city of Albany, CA offerings.
