KIDS TRI ‘N SHINE

This miniature triathlon features a running, swimming, and bicycling portion, just like a full triathlon would! Kids 6-15 will love this challenge. All proceeds from this event will benefit our Financial Assistance Program, and each participant will receive a custom Kids Tri n Shine t-shirt. New to triathlons? No problem! This fun race will introduce your child to the sport of triathlon. Sponsored by Copus Orthodontics and Bay City Morning Rotary.

How will a virtual triathlon work? You can do all three disciplines (swimming, biking and running) at the same time or break them up how you see fit. Going to the lake for a few days or your friends pool to beat the heat? Encourage your child to finish the swim portion! Taking the bikes out on the Rail Trail after dinner, record the bike leg! The important thing is, to show us how much fun they can have participating in a triathlon. There is no right or wrong way! We will post a link that you can upload your child’s photo or video that we can share with our community.
