About This Activity

Start time: 8am

A Kids Triathlon for all ages and levels. A snake swim (up and back in each lane then switch to the next lane) in the Wildewood Community pool, biking on Wildewood roads and running on Wildewood roads and grassy field. Finishers awards, age group awards and refreshments after the race.

NO RACE DAY REGISTRATION!  Online registration will close at midnight on 7/30/13.  If space is still available, last chance for registration will be at packet pick-up on Friday August 1, 2013 from 6-8pm.  Note an increase in price will apply for packet pick-up registration.

New for this year we've broken out the Tri-it-Out race into two races to be able to give thte younger kids a slightly shorter race.  The Rookie Tri will cover ages 5-6 and the Tri-it-Out will cover ages 7-8.  See the adjusted distances below in the race distances.

Also, the transition area will be in the field this year.  This will allow for more parking by not using the parking area for transition. A new transition map will be posted with the race courses, shortly.

We also hope to improve the bicycle course this year but are awaiting approval for the requested changes.  Once the changes have been set we will post the new maps and send out an email letting everyone know.

Once again registration for the Tiny Tri is available here.  In order to keep our registration costs as low as possible for all races the Tiny Tri registration cannot be used as the first registrtaion for the multiple child discount.  For example - you are registrating three children - two for the Big Kids races and one for the Tiny Tri.  The first child in a Big Kid race would be full price (either non-member or Pax Tri Club Member), the second Big Kid would be the discounted additional child and then the Tiny Tri participant would be $5 (plus USAT one-day fee).

The race distances/age groups are as follows:

Tiny Tri (ages 3-5): 12.5M swim (flotation devices allowed); 75 yds bike (trikes, big wheels allowed); 50 yd run.

Rookie Tri (ages 5-6):  25M swim; 1.0 mile bike; 1/8th mile run

Tri-It-Out (ages 7-8): 25M swim; 2.0 mile bike; 0.25 mile run

Mini-Sprint (ages 9-10): 100M swim; 2.5 mile bike; 0.75 mile run

Super Sprint (ages 11-12): 200M swim; 3.2 mile bike; 1 mile run

Half Sprint (ages 13-14, 15-17): 300M swim; 6.4 mile bike; 1.5 mile run


NOTE: Age groups follow USAT rules which state that racers compete in the age group for the age they will be on Dec 31 of the race year. So chose the race based upon the age your child will be on Dec 31th of this year.

Early registration price (price increases on 7/14/14) - Pax Tri Club Members - $15; non-members - $25; additional children (Members and non-members alike) - $10. USAT membership: if you do not have a USAT membership for your child you will be required to buy one during registration for $10 for a one day membership or $15 for an annual plus the Active processing fee (should be less than a dollar per membership).
