Tri-City Kidsí Triathlon
July 18 @ Dow High School

The Tri-City Kids' Triathlon was created to foster a healthy lifestyle and a sense of accomplishment for kids ages 6-15. Each triathlete will swim, bike, and run to complete the competition. NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY.

This is a fantastic opportunity for your child to participate in an enjoyable, low-key athletic event that emphasizes health, self-esteem, self-confidence and fun, in a safe, family-friendly environment.

Weather
The safety of our athletes and volunteers is our primary concern. In the event of inclement weather, every attempt will be made to preserve the safety of everyone involved, and complete the race as scheduled.

In the event of:



Lightning: the event will be postponed by 30 minutes. If lightning is closer than 6 miles away at 9:00 AM, then the race will be postponed by 30 minutes. Families should wait in their cars until 9:30. If the lightning continues to be within 6 miles at 9:30 AM, the race will be cancelled.



Rain: the event will NOT be cancelled due to rain alone. If race officials determine that the bike portion of the race will be unsafe due to wet roads, the race will be changed to a swim-run duathlon. Athletes will be informed of such a change via announcements on race day.



Tornado warning: The race will be cancelled in the event of a tornado warning.



**ENTRY FEES WILL NOT BE REFUNDED IN THE EVENT OF CANCELLATION.

Parking
There is plenty of parking at Dow High School in the lots west and east of the building. However - during the race the parking lots will be CLOSED! If you have anyone coming to watch that will arrive after 9 am or that will need to leave before the race finishes please have them park off-site.
