BETTENDORF, Iowa– More than 200 kids ages 6 – 15 will take part in this Saturday's Hy-Vee Kids Fit Triathlon at the Bettendorf YMCA.
The action starts at 8 a.m. when the senior competitors (ages 12 – 15) take to the pool at the YMCA. At the conclusion of the senior race, the intermediates (ages 9 – 11) will race, followed by the juniors (ages 6 – 8). A tentative schedule of events is outlined below.
The USAT-sanctioned Hy-Vee Kids Fit Triathlons follow the same swim-bike-run format as an adult triathlon, with distances adjusted for the ages of the competitors. The top 15 boys and the top 15 girls at each age level will qualify to compete in the Hy-Vee Kids Championship Triathlon at the Hy-Vee Triathlon in Des Moines on Aug. 30, 2014.
There are sure to be great photo opportunities as the kids swim, bike and run their way to the finish line where they will all have a chance to break the tape.
