The SteelKids Triathlon is a fun introduction to the sport of triathlon for children of all ages. Typically ages are 3 - 12 yrs. old. The race course is a 25 (3 to 7 yrs. old) and 75 ( 8 to 12 yrs. old) meter swim in Darien Lakes State Park and will be monitored by Life Guard Staff as well as the Buffalo Police Departments Underwater Recovery Team, making this an extremely safe swim.
The Kids Tri will then head out on the 1.4 mile bike and then finish with a trail run around the park. This is a spectator friendly race, and we encourage any and all parents to run beside and encourage their children.
This fun event will start soon after the last competitor of the adult race crosses the finish line. We recommend that children arrive NO later than 10:30 for an approximate 11:00 am start. Make sure they get their bodies marked just like the "big kids" in the beach admin building.
