Teamed with the Rose City Sprint Triathlon, our Rose City Kids Triathlon sets the scene for the perfect family-friendly healthy living experience. This premier event will offer young athletes of all levels the unique opportunity to enjoy the excitement of competition without the anxiety that comes with being a novice. All finishing participants will be awarded an esteemed medal. Parents, family, and friends are invited to cheer on the racers while enjoying the beautiful lake venue nestled among the piney woods.

The kids event IS NOT USAT sanctioned. 
The 50 yard and 100 yard open water swim will be a well-monitored point-to-point swim in shallow depths. The wave start will be a standing entry and an easy exit.
