Adventure #47: Swim, Bike & Run in the Tri Kids Triathlon.
In what can only be described as the “feel good event of the summer,” the annual Tri Kids Triathlon at Nelson Park and Pool attracts hundreds of kids and their parents to a day of great ambition, huge accomplishments and big boosts in self-esteem.
Kids of all ages — 3 to 15 — have a chance to swim in the outdoor pool and then bike and run across the length of the park.
These events are all about achievement and not competition. The philosophy is one of complete not compete, with a goal of inspiring self-confidence and motivating kids to stay active through sport.
