About This Activity

Each year hundreds of kids will enjoy the calm waters of Glenn Cunningham Lake before biking on the roads inside the park.  Then, athletes put on their running shoes for an out-and-back run over the Dam.

Bring the family to Omaha and make it a Triathlon weekend. The weekend offers the Kids Triathlon on Saturday and the Omaha Triathlon on Sunday.

Omaha Kids Triathlon (July 16h) - The Kids race at the same venue as the adults

Location:  Glenn Cunningham Lake, Omaha, Nebraska

Parking:   Head to the “boat ramp” entrance and follow the parking signs.  Parking is allowed on the grass in specific areas.  No parking on the apron of the road.  Look for the parking signs.  During the Kids Triathlon, the park entrance will be closed from 9:00 am to 11:30 am during the triathlon.

The kids will enter the water one at a time every 3 to 5 seconds.  This is called a time trial start.
