The Gorge Kids Tri is a fun and safe entry level triathlon for elementary aged kids. All proceeds go to support PE and fitness programs.Three start waves will accommodate kids k-1, 2-3, and 4-5. Children may opt to enter by difficulty level rather than by age. This will allow children with high skill level to bump up a level.
