Everyone is a winner in the Kiwanis Kids Triathlon Series! The Kiwanis Kids Triathlon Series allows young athletes to experience the fun and excitement of triathlon. It's a morning of friendly competition and physical activity that can lead to a lifetime of fitness. A triathlon is an exciting sport for young athletes because it involves three activities that every child enjoys - swimming, cycling and running. For more than 15 years, Kiwanis Clubs in the Greater Houston Area have sponsored races in the Kiwanis Kids Triathlon Series. Here in The Woodlands, the Kiwanis Kids Triathlon is sponsored by The Woodlands Kiwanis Club.

The Kiwanis Kids Triathlon is open to boys and girls 7-12 years old (as of December 31, 2013). Boys and girls 7 - 9 years old swim 50 meters, bike one mile, and run a quarter mile. Boys and girls 10 - 12 years old swim 100 meters, bike two miles, and run a half mile. Every athlete will receive a finisher's medal, t-shirt and other items. Trophies will be given to the top three boys and top three girls in each age group. Presentation of all trophies will be at the end of the event. Race numbers, chip timing device, instructions, and course maps will be available one hour before start time. Please arrive no later than one hour before the race starts to check in, review the course, and ready your transition area.

The triathlon is sanctioned by USA Triathlon. All participants must be members of USA Triathlon and will be required to provide a USA Triathlon membership number at the time of race check-in. You may purchase an annual USA Triathlon youth membership for $15 online here OR on race day during race check-in. It is strongly recommended that you purchase the membership in advance.

You may register before the event for $25 per racer, or on race-day for $30. The form for race-day registration can be found here. Online registration closes at 5:00 PM on Thursday, July 25. Helmets must be worn for the bike course. Shoes must be worn for both the bike and run courses. No headphones or radios during the race.
