Chapel Hill, NC

Description: The Swim for Smiles Foundation is excited to announce that registration is open for our 4th Annual Youth Triathlon to be held on May 16, 2010 in Chapel Hill, NC. Last year's event drew over 440 participants and this year's has been expanded to accommodate at least 600. Open to kids from ages 6-18, the Swim for Smiles Youth Triathlon is a USA-Triathlon sanctioned event and includes two courses for ALL levels of participants. In addition, we have a limited number of relay teams made up of kids of any and all ages (one kid will swim, another bike and the third will run the course -- all relay participants and teams will do the Long Course).

Beginners can select a Short Course triathlon that includes a 100-meter swim, a 2.5-mile bike course and finishes with a short 1K (0.6miles) run. Long Course participants will begin with a 300-meter swim, transition to a 5-mile bike course and then finish with a 3K run (1.8miles). The Swim for Smiles Youth Triathlon will start on May 16th at 8am in Chapel Hill Country Club's heated pool, move to a neighborhood bike ride and end with a side-walk run. This is considered an easy triathlon and it designed for all levels of youth participants.

Every finisher receives a medal and the top three finishers of each age group will receive prizes!
