We are race #2 of the 18th annual Kiwanis Kids Triathlon Series, a series for boys & girls born in the years 2002-2007 (7-12 years old).
The course features comfortable distances and spectator-friendly surroundings. We also will utilize chip timing. Visit our website at www.greaterhoustonkiwanis.org for maps to race sites and other race dates/locations in the Series, which begins June 2014 and continues through September 2014.

Athletes are placed in an age group by their birth year, not by their age on race day. Each age group races separately. Boys and Girls compete separately in their age group. NOTE: It is up to the discretion of the Race Director to allow an athlete born after 2006 to compete.
Every athlete will receive a finisher’s medal, t-shirt and other items. Trophies will be given to the top three boys and top three girls in each age group. Presentation of ALL trophies will be at the end of the event.
