When

June 20, 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Where

San Jose State University Aquatic Center
8th Street
San Jose, CA 95192

AGE DIVISIONS:

Distances for the Kids Triathlon will vary, depending on the age of participants:

Junior (ages 6 to 8): 50-yard swim, 2-mile bike and 500-yard run
Intermediate (ages 9 to 11): 150-yard swim, 4-mile bike and 1-mile run
Senior (ages 12 to 13): 300-yard swim, 8-mile bike and 2-mile run

SWIM START:

The swim will take place in an outdoor, 25-yard pool. The swim start will be in waves, with children spliting lanes. This gives us 40 lanes. The first wave will start at 8:00 a.m. Waves will continue in 10 minute increments.

SWIM COURSE AND WATER SAFETY:

Wetsuits are NOT allowed. We will have a team of Lifeguards and Water Safety Marshals that will be surrounding the pool. Kickboards are allowed.

TRANSITION:

The swim-to-bike transition and the bike-to-run transition are in the same place. Each participant will have a spot to rack his/her bike and set up necessary equipment. Transition will be divided into zones (Senior Division participants will be racking their bikes alongside other Senior Division participants, etc.).

BIKE COURSE:

The bike course will be on paths closed to motor traffic. Each division will be on the same one-mile course, with loops of the course for the Senior and Intermediate Divisions. We will have volunteers and signs directing participants, however please make sure your child knows what division he/she is in, as we will be referring to the course based on division (Junior, Intermediate, Senior). Mile markers (large signs) will be along the course.

RUN COURSE:

The run course will be on paved walkway and grass. Please make sure your child knows what division he/she is in, as we will be referring to division to help direct participants along the course. On the run course, the directional signs will be color-coded: yellow for Junior, orange for Intermediate and light blue for Senior.

AID STATIONS:

There will be one aid station in the transition, no aid stations on the bike course and one aid station on the run course. Aid stations will have water.
