If your kids spent the summer at the pool and biking or running all over the neighborhood, they may be ready to "tri" their efforts in Club Fitness's first annual youth triathlon. SwiBiRu is the name of the event which will be held both indoors and outdoors on the morning of Saturday, September 13.
There will be two competition brackets for ages 6-9 and 10-13. The younger group will swim 50 yards, bike 2 miles and run one mile. The older division will swim 100 yards then also bike 2 miles and run one mile. The swimming event will be held at the indoor pool at Club Fitness while the biking and running events will be held outdoors in Centennial Park. Participants must bring their own gear and bicycle helmets are required for each contestant.
Trophies will be presented to the top three boy and girl finishers of each age group. Everyone who finishes the triathlon will be awarded a medal. Cool t-shirts and goody bags will be given to everyone who registers. Goody bags full of fun items and important race information must be picked up one week prior to the event at Club Fitness.
