One parent or guardian must accompany participants in the 3-5 age group in the water and on foot for the bike and run. All athletes may wear a life jacket. Life jackets will be supplied. Waterwings, flutter boards or flippers are not permitted. It is expected that athletes 6 years of age and older will not require assistance from a parent but special arrangements can be made. There will be plenty of volunteers on hand to assist at any point during the race. Contact us with special requests or for specific details on the swim.
