  • The Bad Boys Kids Tri allows young athletes a fun and safe way to experience the excitement of a multi-sport event. This will be a morning of friendly competition and physical activity that can lead to a lifetime of fitness. A triathlete's age group is determined by the age the athlete will be on July 13, 2013. This event is designed for young athletes only. Parents may not accompany their child on any portion of the race and MUST adhere to any roped off areas or their child will be disqualified.
  • The Bad Boys Kids Tri will consist of swimming, followed by a transition to cycling, and then a transition to running. NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY. Participants do not need to be in a club to participate in the triathlon, but must be able to safely participate in all three sports to compete.
