Bauman Aquatic Center to host kids' triathlon | Events
The Bauman Aquatic Center in Middleton will host its third triathlon for kids, sponsored by Tri 4 Schools, on Aug. 17.
According to a release, children ages 3-14 can enter to race. The event has three different distances, allowing kids to choose the right race for them. There is also an adaptive division for children with disabilities.
Kids can enter as individuals or as a two- to three-person team. The swimming portion will be held in the outdoor pool. The run will be on the Pheasant Branch trail and Middleton High School and the bike course will cover surrounding neighborhoods.
The triathlon costs $25 to $60 depending on the number of racers. All of the money raised helps fight childhood obesity by benefiting 48 local school health and fitness programs.
The event is expected to draw 500 kids and nearly $12,000 in funds.
