About This Activity

The Karen Stevens Memorial Kid's Triathlon was created in memory of Karen Stevens, a treasured member of the SPCC family.


Karen was a swim instructor at SPCC Aquatics, accomplished at teaching students of all ages and abilities. Karen was gifted at teaching those with special needs because of her kind and patient nature. During her years at SPCC, she taught many children how to be safe and enjoy the water. Karen was an exceptionally dedicated, patient and qualified instructor. Sadly Karen passed away in November 2009 after a year long battle with cancer.


The proceeds from the triathlon go toward funding swim lessons for underprivileged children.

Junior TRI-IT!:

Junior Tri-it! This course is designed for first time triathletes (8 years old and under). Participants will begin the triathlon with a swim in the SPCC heated therapy pool (4 lengths) followed by a ½ mile bike ride before finishing the race with a ¼ mile run. The course will be held on the Severna Park Community Center grounds. The Junior Tri-IT is an opportunity for younger participants to develop their triathlon skills.



We encourage everyone to enjoy their experience of a recreational triathlon.  The swim, run, and transition times (the time between each leg of the event) will count towards your overall triathlon time. Times will not count for the bike leg because no one is permitted to exceed the speed limit of 15 mph. No participant will be advantaged or disadvantaged by the bike “ride”.  There will be designated pathways roped off to direct you to the next leg of the triathlon.


Please stay in the path for your safety and obey all B&A Trail regulation including the 15 mph speed limit; failure to do so will result in disqualification.
