What is a kids triathlon?
Triathlon is one of the fastest-growing sports in the world, and kids triathlons are a vital part
of this trend. There is no better way for any child to experience the benefits of a healthy lifestyle
focused on daily exercise and good nutrition. Every triathlon consists of 4 components – swimming, biking, running and transitions. At the First Coast Kids Triathlon, kids will only race against other kids in their same age group.
This event is open to children 6 – 15…so pass the information on to older siblings!!
