You want your kids to be fit and have a lot of fun this summer, don’t you? Of course, you do! Who doesn’t want their kids to be healthy and happy? Well, there’s an easy what you can encourage them to do just that. Just sign them up for the Wilson Family YMCA Youth Triathlon. When they participate in this event, they’re going to have a blast – and they may even develop a love for working out and getting active, too. The race is coming up soon, so make sure you register them as soon as possible. Now, check out some of the details you’ll want to keep in mind when you sign them up.
The Wilson Family YMCA Youth Triathlon is going to take place on Saturday, Aug. 17, and it will run from 8 a.m. to noon. The race will be located at the rec center on Sunset Drive in Wilson, which means it’s centrally located for most families in the area. Does your child want to participate alone? In that case, you’ll pay $35 for registration. A two-person relay team costs $50, and a three-person relay team costs $65. It’s for kids ages 5 to 17, and there are different divisions for different age groups. That way, everyone can participate.
Kids ages 5 to 7 will swim 50 yards, bike for a mile and a half, and run for a half-mile. That’s just perfect for the little ones. Children ages 8 to 10 will have a different course. They’ll swim 100 yards, bike three miles, and run a mile. Is your child between 11 and 17 years of age? In that case, they’ll run 150 yards and bike for four and a half miles. After that, they’ll run a mile and a half. Since older children can handle more, this should be reasonable for them.
