2nd Annual Tri For The Kids Olympic Triathlon

Thursday, January 6, 2011

The 2nd Annual Tri For The Kids Olympic Distance Triathlon is scheduled for Saturday, April 30 in Rome, Georgia. The event is being held in conjunction with the 3rd Annual Tri For The Kids Youth Triathlon, with proceeds from both races benefiting the Boys & Girls Club of Rome. With a down-river swim, it sounds like a good race for those new to the Olympic distance.

Swim: 1.1 miles

  • Racers will enter the water one at a time, swimming with the current in the Etowah River
  • Water temperature will be posted and updated closer to race day, but it's likely to be a wetsuit-legal race.

Bike: 24 miles

  • The bike is on good city and county roads, flat to rolling with a couple of small, challenging hills - should allow for a fast ride.

Run: 6.2 miles

  • The run will be primarily flat to gently rolling towards the end.

Registration is only $65 until April 5, and relay teams are encouraged. Registration is open on IMAthlete.
