As we did last year, 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.

The swim takes place in Waynewood's 25 meter pool. The Waynewood course is the least complicated with a one way bike loop repeated the appropriate number of times for each age group. The bike is mostly flat with a long incline on the back of the course and a fast downhill on Waynewood Blvd. back to transition. The run is fast and flat.
