Kids Triathlon

Ready! Set! Participate! in the Nampa Rec Department’s Kids Triathlon! This fun and challenging event is for kids ages 6-13 and will include swimming, biking and running. The 3-event race not only promotes fitness but improves your child’s self confidence as they cross the finish line on their own.  A great introduction to the sport, participants will swim in Lincoln Pool followed by a safe bike and run on roads and grounds of Lions Park.   All participants will receive an event bag and all finishers will receive a t-shirt.  The transition areas will be in the parking lots and we strongly encourage friends and family to come cheer on these young competitors.  All participants must wear a helmet for the bike portion of the triathlon and supply their own bike.
