Rochester Area Triathletes are holding the fourth annual Rochester Kids' Triathlon on Saturday, July 19. While certainly a more scaled down and accessible course when compared to traditional triathlons, the Rochester Kids' Triathlon is still sure to pose a challenge to the kids who are up for it. Participants can either participate in the short course (50 meter swim, 2.2 mile bike, half mile run) or the long course (100 meter swim, 4.3 mile bike, one mile run). There is also a Teen Super Sprint category (300 meter swim, 6.4 mile bike, and 1.8 mile run). Any child from 6 to 17 years old is welcome to participate as long as they can ride a bike, run, and swim.
The Rochester Kids' Triathlon will take place Saturday, July 19, at the Genesee Valley Park, 1000 East River Road, at 8 a.m. The short and long course costs $15, $5 for City of Rochester residents, and the Teen Super Sprint is $20, and $7 for city residents.
