Kids Triathlon Results
Swim Bike and Run for Freedom
The Greater Palm Harbor YMCA hosted the 7th Annual Kids Triathlon “Swim, Bike, Run for Freedom” on Sunday, September 7. This youth triathlon event was sponsored by The Heart & Vascular Institute of Florida. The opening ceremonies were dedicated to all those who served our country and especially to those heroes who perished on September 11, 2001.
More than 220 children between the ages of 5 and 15 became a triathlete for the day! For many it was their first try! The Greater Palm Harbor YMCA set up a safe course that was perfect for a kid's first triathlon.
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.
If you missed the kid's triathlon there's plenty of swimming and running programs at all Y branches to prepare you for the next triathlon!
