Kids Tri for Freedom
The Greater Palm Harbor YMCA hosted the 6th Annual Kids Triathlon “Swim, Bike, Run for Freedom” on Sunday, September 22. The event began with an opening ceremony at 7:45 a.m., dedicated to our men and women serving our country.
This was a great opportunity for any child between the ages of 5 and 15 to become an official triathlete for the day! The distances for the event:
Ages 5-6, 25 yard swim, 1 mile bike and ¼ mile run
Ages 7-10, 100 yard swim, 2 mile bike and ½ mile run
Ages 11-15, 200 yard swim, 4 mile bike and 1 mile run
The Greater Palm Harbor YMCA partnered with the Palm Harbor Tri-Warriors Triathlon club to stage the event. It’s a great way for the Y and the club to introduce kids to the sport.
“I like giving back to the Y, they’re a great organization,” said event director Tony Thomas.
If you missed the triathlon there's plenty of swimming and running programs at all Y branches to prepare you for next year!
