In its second year the YWCO Kids Tri the Y youth triathlon saw more than 100 kids swim, bike and run their way up and down Research Drive in Athens and across the grounds of the YWCO east side facility. We had another perfect day of weather and saw more smiles than we could count.
The kids triathlon features three age divisions including 6-8, 9-10 and 11-13. Each age group races appropriate distances including a 50/100/150 yard swim, 2/3/4 mile bike, and .6/1 mile/1/4 mile run.
The Dream Team had more than 50 members racing from Athens, Atlanta and Augusta, and had dozens of parents and siblings volunteering for this family friendly event. Our members took home (23) top three awards, (52) top ten placements and watched nearly a dozen members finish their first triathlon.
Many thanks to Athens Bulldog Swim Club for managing the swim leg, Georgia Cycle Sport for managing the run leg and Athens Running Company for timing the event.
Age group results can be found at Athens Running Company’s results page.
Next up for the Dream Team is the Calloway Gardens Sprint Triathlon and Peach Kids Alpharetta.
