The triathlon not only provides area children with the opportunity to compete and be active but also gives back to the community. The proceeds of the event go to the Snowdrop Foundation and the Cdifferent Foundation.
In order to participate, children must be between the ages of 5-12 as of December 31, 2011 and be a USA Triathlon member, which costs only $5 per year. Distances for each portion of the triathlon varies based on the child’s age group.
