Proud to Tri Youth Triathlon

Waterford , CT

Saturday September 10, 2022

All levels welcome. This is a family friendly event followed by ice cream from Ben and Jerry's! We are very lucky to be partnered with Camp Harkness who provides annual use of their beautiful facility for all participants to enjoy this event.  Children/teens can discover what it is like to have fun competing in a triathlon event. Event will be timed with 5 splits. Awards are based on finish time. Every child receives a medal at the finish line and trophies will be given to the top three finishers (male and female) in each age division. This event will mark the third event in our Triple Crown series. Every child who participated in both events will receive a special award at the awards ceremony immediately following the race at the pavilion. NOTE* All participants 11 years and over will be swimming in water over their head. All children 7-10 years old will be able to touch "most of the time". Lifeguards (many) will be spread along the route to assist as needed.
