DIVISIONS and AWARDS
This unique junior/youth format will present individual awards for the following age groups: 12-13, 14-15 and 16-17. Awards will be presented to the top 5 places for both male and females. A team award will be presented for the top-scoring team across all categories.
All participants receive a T-shirt, goodie bag, swim cap, bib number, finisher medal, post-race food and more.
While this event is open to all athletes, there is a minimum standard that must be met to ensure the safety of all participants. Junior athletes must 1) have previously competed in a minimum of one triathlon or competed for a minimum of 2 years within an organized swim team/club and 2) be able to swim a minimum of .25 miles unassisted in open water.
If your young athlete does not meet these requirements, he or she may still have the opportunity to take part in the great sport of triathlon. Consider registering your 7- to 14-year-old in the Life Time Kids Tri, held at Life Time Fitness Plymouth the Sunday of race weekend! Click here for details.
