• Organized by Kids Triathlon, Inc. (a 501c(3) entity), this event will attract 800+ racers to the UH campus. This is one of a select group of USAT sanctioned kids triathlons in South Texas during 2012, and it has the potential to become the largest kids triathlon in Texas in its 1st year.

Course Info:
• Race distances are set by the USAT and are designed to be challenging but achievable for kids. Ages 5 – 10 will swim 100 yards; bike 3 miles; and run 0.5 miles. Ages 11 – 15 will swim 200 yards; bike 6 miles; and run 1 mile. The swim is in the UH pool, and the bike and run courses are closed to traffic with the safety of the participants the primary objective.
Other Info
• One of the hallmarks of the Houston Kids Triathlon is our goal to attract as many first-time triathletes as possible. We want to connect with kids who would not otherwise even dream about competing in a triathlon. At the center of this effort is our Team Fundraising Program through which we encourage schools, neighborhoods, leagues, churches, companies and other organizations to form teams of 10 or more kids. In return for participating as a team (each kid still does the entire race on their own), Kids Triathlon will donate $10 per child back to the sponsoring organization.
