For the past two years we have had varying distances for the three disciplines in each age group. It has been difficult logistically to maintain this model so we are having one set of distances for the 6-8 and 9-10 age groups and another set of distances for the 11-12 and 13-15 age groups. Distances suggested by USA Triathlon (USAT) are below. Designing two course distances using the same routes is a challenge so we are not always able to get the numbers exactly where USAT suggests however we try to balance the overall effort/difficulty in the other disciplines.

NOTE: Please review the distances below before signing your child up. We strive for this to be a positive experience for all our participants. Our goal at every race is to have no "Did Not Finish" (DNFs). Please also review the course maps on this page once they are posted.

RACE UPDATE: I am sorry to say that because of circumstances out of our control, we have had to cancel the race at Stratford this year. We are planning to return next year when things are back to or closer to normal. We will be building an online module for people already registered to let me know which option for refund/credit is there preference but this may take a while.

What was our inaugural race two years ago is back for a third year! We will be hosting the third annual Lucky Coin Multisport Youth Triathlon at Stratford Recreation Association on June 14, 2020.

Pool swim of the appropriate distance in a 25 meter pool followed by a five turn out and back ride, mostly on Stockton Parkway. With only five turns (plus turnaround) on the single loop course and eleven turns on the three loop course, this course is great for beginners. The ride is followed by a flat sidewalk run around the block, one or three loops depending on the athlete’s age.

We hope to see our returning athletes as well as lots of new faces.
