About This Activity

Welcome to the 1st annual kid's Triathlon sponsored by FV Fitness at the Forrestal Village Center, Plainsboro. Raising money for Eden Autism Services.

We just added a Splash and Dash category to this event. For those who prefer not to bike, they can swim and run and cross the finish line with everyone else. There will be a single distance format. Swim will be 75 yards, the Run will be the longer loop approx 1 mile or less. (same as the 9-10 yr old triathletes without doing the bike course). There will not be top 3 awards for this new category however each athlete will still receive the finisher medal upon crossing the finish line.

NOTE: This is a USATriathlon Sanctioned event. Athletes must have a USAT membership or pay $10 for the USAT Youth membership. At Packet Pickup, each athlete will be REQUIRED by USA Triathlon (providers of event insurance) to show proof membership.

Since this is a USA Triathlon sanctioned event, we must follow the age group competition regulations. Athletes will participate and compete in the age group division corresponding to the athlete’s age on December 31 of the year of the event. For example, someone who is 6 years old at the race may compete as long as they will turn 7 sometime during 2016. They will be ranked as a 7 year old. Age is determined by birth year rather than actual race day age.
USATriathlon Supplemental Youth Rules can be found at this link > USATriathlon Youth Rules

A couple weeks before the event, we will plan to hold 1 or 2 onsite seminars to review set up procedures, rules, and answer any questions. Like our facebook page to keep updated with announcements.

General Information:
The most important factor will be the safety of the participants. The event will be altered or cancelled if it is deemed that for any reason the event is unsafe for the participants.

The purpose of this event is to promote multisport participation in the Youth, Families and Individuals, and encourage physical exercise and a healthy lifestyle. Our goal is also to raise funds for Eden Autism Services. Eden has been delivering services to children and adults with autism and their families, educators, and other professionals since 1975.

Awards: Awards will be given out to top 3 males and females in each age group. Finisher medals will be given to all participants.

All participants will receive a commemorative finisher’s medal and t-shirt (*While supplies last; register early to assure a tee). The cut-off date for selecting a shirt size is June 1st. Registrations after June 1st will not be able to reserve a size. Shirts will be offered while supplies last at race check-in.

After the event there will be light snacks and refreshments.  All participants will receive a free Kona Ice snow cone.
And then of course the awards ceremony!
