On Saturday, July 18, hundreds of children will experience the challenge and fun of friendly athletic competition as they run, swim and bike to the finish line of the Kids Triathlon at the The Woodlands Family YMCA at Branch Crossing. The race begins at 7:30 am and is open to children ages 6-12 of all skill levels.

In its ten+ years of promoting fitness and confidence in children, the Kids Triathlon, presented by Texas Children's Hospital The Woodlands, benefits the YMCA Annual Campaign, which ensures everyone, regardless of age, income or background has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive at the Y.

"The Kids Triathlon provides children the chance to accomplish a goal while making new friends and feeling like they belong,” says Roxanne Davis, Community Liaison “And because proceeds from the event go to local Y programs like life-saving swim lessons and after school programs, it supports youth development and wellness beyond race day.”

Boys and girls will compete separately in events designed for their age group. Children ages 6 – 9 will swim 50 meters, cycle for 1 mile and run ¼ of a mile. Children ages 10 – 12 will swim 100 meters, cycle for 2 miles and run ½ mile. Each race includes chip timing for fast, accurate finish line results. All participants must provide their own bike and helmet. (No training wheels allowed). 

Participants will receive a goodie bag, t-shirt and finisher medal at the conclusion of their race, with a special award presented to the top three finishers of each race.

Together as a community. The Kids Triathlon is made possible by generous sponsors, community members and volunteers.
