Inauguaral Kids Triathlon Announced
Island Athletic Events, LLC, producer of the 17th annual Kings San Juan Island Marathon, Half Marathon and 10K and the sixth annual Three Lakes Triathlon announced the first annual Kids Triathlon at Lakedale Resort.
“It’s something we’ve talked about over the winter. Lakedale’s General Manager, Karl Bruno, has been very supportive of adding this family oriented event and we have the infrastructure so why not?” said Paul Hopkins, Race Director.
The kids triathlon happens on Saturday, June 16 in conjunction with the adults race and is open to kids aged 7-15. Kids must be comfortable in the water. Participants will report to Lakedale at 8:30 a.m. and Kids Triathlon Race Director Missy Arata will give a thorough pre-race meeting. The race will begin after the last adult participant is out of the water.
The entire course is on Lakedale property and features a 50 yard swim, 1 mile ride (dirt road) and half-mile run.
