Greeley Kids Triathlon
August 12, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Triathlon is one of the fastest growing sports in America. It’s a great sport for kids because it helps develop their skills in swimming, biking, and running (all of which are lifelong sports) and it helps them develop organizational skills as well since there is a fair amount of planning involved in triathlons. This is a great opportunity for parents to teach their kids how to plan ahead and to “think on their feet”.
Training for a triathlon has many advantages for kids as well. It increases their fitness level and promotes physical activity in a fun, positive way. For kids involved in other sports, such as soccer, baseball/softball, etc, triathlon training can help reduce the risk of injury by developing strength in different areas of their bodies and improving endurance.
There are many triathlons for kids in Colorado. The distances for the Greeley Kids Triathlon are as follows:
5 and under 25-yd. assisted* swim, 100-yd. bike, 50-yd. run
