To build a generation of active, healthy and responsible kids.
This event will attract 1,000 racers. This is one of very few kids triathlons sanctioned by USATriathlon in New England during 2015, and it will be the largest kids triathlon ever held in the Northeast.
Race distances are set by the USATriathlon and are designed to be challenging but achievable for kids. Ages 5 - 10 will swim 100 yards; bike 3 miles; and run 0.5 miles. Ages 11 - 15 will swim 200 yards; bike 6 miles; and run 1 mile. The swim will be in the M.I.T. pool, the bike course will be on Memorial Drive, and the run course will be on campus. All aspects of the course will be closed to traffic with the safety of the participants the primary objective.
