Active SWV Family Triathlon

June 8, 2019 @ 8:00 am1:00 pm

Active SWV Family Triathlon

The fourth annual Active SWV Family Triathlon provides a race event that is friendly to beginners and allows the entire family to compete together. It makes an impact with young runners to see other kids their age taking part in this race. But kids of all ages are welcome to build teams or race as individuals.

This is a great race for any age and welcoming to beginner abilities.
Participants can compete as an individual or as a team. All members of the team need to complete each leg. This is not a relay. Racers will have a 1.2 mile run, 2 mile bicycle ride, and a 1 mile paddle leaving and returning from the beach. There are hills to climb and gravel roads.

Participants are to bring all their own equipment (including helmet for biking and life jacket for paddling) and the course is appropriate for beginners ages 9 and up. Younger children are welcome to participate, if they have been practicing these distance and have paddling/swimming experience.

Registration opens March 1st at this link:
If you are competing as a team; one person can register many people at once (a family) or one person can register and create the team (group of friends). The other members of that group of friends team can register by joining that team. *You must select your team at the time of registration so the timing can be organized.
