Tri-4-Fun Junior Biathlon

  • Ages 4 to 6: 0.35 mile (0.56k) run, 0.85 mile bike
  • Ages 7 to 10: 0.75 mile (1.2k) run, 0.85 mile bike

Running Course

The run will begin at the YMCA and head toward the multipurpose trail (located near driveway entrance). Once on the multipurpose trail runners will head north. The 4-6 year old group will make the first right at the Hagerman Sports Complex (HSC) crossing and the 7-10 year old group will continue straight to a turnaround and return to the same crossing. After the crossing at the HSC crossing runners will continue east to a non-paved parking lot. At the parking lot runners will turn right and head back to the YMCA. Once at the YMCA runners will be directed to their bicycle within Waller Park. The entire run course is relatively flat.

Bike Course

Once on their bikes, the athletes will ride in a clockwise, 0.85 mile circle, along a paved roadway, all the way back to the YMCA. Just short of the starting point, the riders will park their bikes and run across the adult finish line, located within the YMCA parking lot. The ride does have mild hills so we encourage someone to accompany the younger riders and to assist when needed.

Note – both the run and ride will have plenty of volunteers and signage to help your little athlete find their way!
