This is a family friendly event where all levels are welcome followed by a brunch for all race families. We are very lucky to be located at beautiful Ninigret Park for all participants to enjoy this event. Children/teens can discover what it is like to have fun competing in a triathlon event. The bike will be on the Criterium race course which is approx. a 1 mile loop paved loop used for bike races. Event will be timed with 5 splits by “Time to TRI” . Awards are based on finish time. Every child receives a medal at the finish line and awards will be given to the top three finishers (male and female) in each age division. NOTE* All participants 11 years and over will be swimming in water over their head. All children 7-10 years old will also be over their head at times during the swim.
