Welcome to the Kids ROCK Triathlon August 4, 2013 Black Diamond, WA 9:45 AM
Who: Kids age 7-12 are invited to participate in this fun off-road triathlon.
What: This race, like a real adult triathlon, is a swim, bike and a run. The distances are short enough so you can finish the race, but long enough to be a challenge.
When: The race starts at about 9:45, after all the adult triathletes of XTERRA Black Diamond exit the water.
Swim: Swim 75 yards out and back in deepish water! We know some of you might not be able to swim that distance yet without a little help, so feel free to wear a life jacket or water wings or WHATEVER. You can also bring a parent along in the water if you want to.
Bike: Bike 1 mile on grass and gravel. This is a bumpy, unpaved course and has some little hills - just like the adult triathletes will have at their race. You’ll be able to get through the bike course on just about any type of bike. Make sure your tires are pumped up and your chain is lubed! The bike course is an out and back.
Run: The Run course is on gravel and grass, it is a 2 loop course. At the end, you’ll cross the finish line and get a ribbon and a snack!
Where: The Race is at the Lake Sawyer Open Space in Black Diamond. Also going on that day at the park is XTERRA Black Diamond . The XTERRA is an off-road triathlon for adults who come from all over the country to participate. We’ll have professional triathletes as well as amateur and age-group competitors from the Pacific Northwest and beyond. The adult race is fun to watch while you’re at the park.
