As it is unknown what the COVID-19 situation in Ontario will look like in Summer 2022, we cannot plan for any specific policies and procedures at this time. However, please know that we will follow every public health guideline and ensure that the risk of transmission is as low as possible.
TRi KiDS is all about creating a positive, fun and rewarding experience. If your child would be better suited for the age group lower than their birth year would put them in please contact us. There are no barriers to participation at TRi KiDS.
Sorry, no. If someone else races under your name and is injured, or causes an accident, that person will not be covered by any protection typically afforded to an athlete through the insurance policy.
Unfortunately no. Weather is an uncontrollable factor as are uncontrollable circumstances and every effort will be made to proceed with a safe event. It is possible that the swim and/or the bike portions of the event are cancelled. If this is the case, then a swim/run or bike/run or a run only event will take place. Participants will still receive their t-shirt,race kits and medal. TRi KiDS races are outdoor, rain or shine events. There are no refunds or rain-dates.
Online registration will close if the race reaches maximum capacity, or closes according to the schedule which is typically the Sunday, one week prior to the race. There is no race day registration.
Picking up your race kit the day before makes your race day hassle and stress-free. With the changes to race protocols we also encourage both athletes and parents to attend the orientation sessions during race kit pick up.
We will have race kits available for pick up on race day for those coming from out of town and those unable to pick up the day prior.
Refunds may be requested via email for medical reasons only and assessed on a case by case basis. Given the short timeline between registration opening and race date we cannot offer full refunds.
Processing fee and applicable tax on the processing fee are non-refundable.
I have 8 year old twins and this was their second year participating in the Burlington Triathlon. My kids enjoyed themselves immensely. The organization of the event is incredible. You do an amazing job making sure that this is a fun event for everyone involved. You manage to take the stress out of the day and we love how you encourage participation and not winning. CONGRATS to another well planned and successful event.
My 7-year old daughter just completed her very first triathlon at your Niagara event and wants to do another one – now! She was very nervous going into this and any glitch could have resulted in this being her first, and last, triathlon. I have to commend you for an incredibly well run event! Everything from email notifications, race kit pickup, orientation, transitions, course marshals, etc., everything! I understand that your events sell out very quickly and I can see why.
This was the second year that our children have participated in the Burlington Triathlon and this year was another OUTSTANDING year. My husband and I have been so incredibly impressed with your events – the professionalism – the overall vibe of the events are so positive and encouraging…a huge thank you for running these events and encouraging athletes of all abilities to participate, have fun and succeed! You should feel really great about the work you do – it goes a long way to building confidence and esteem in many, many children. So again – a huge thanks – and a special shout-out to all the amazing volunteers too!
Excellent event. Well run. On time. Nice quality medals at the end. Ability to get the stuff out of the transition zones allows families to get on the road back home which is appreciated. Overall, the volunteer team and organizers should feel very proud of the event. Very well run.
My family would like to thank you and your organization for this past weekends Tri Kids Niagara race in Port Colborne. Our 5 year old completed her first race. It was an awesome event. We look forward to next summer when we can enjoy more races, and see the confidence and pride on all the kids faces for having completed such a fun and challenging journey.
This weekend was perhaps our 5th time participating in the event. Just wanted to say that it is such a thrill to have our kids compete in a friendly and safe environment that is unmatched by any other triathlon. The changes you made to the race course this year were a big improvement! Looking forward to many more years of swim bike and run with you !
This is our second year participating in the TriKids at Burnaby. We have had a fantastic experience both years. Well organized, enthusiastic volunteers and a great course for the kids. We’re excited to come back next year. Thanks so much!
OMG just watched my grandchildren complete the triathlon in Port Colborne. It was an absolute pleasure….They LOVED it and I was absolutely amazed at the organization and everything about the event. Heartiest thanks and congratulations to all involved. Everyone we met and everything about it was fantastic….they had a wonderful experience and are already talking about the next triathlon.
I just wanted to send you a note to thank you for putting on such a wonderful event! We cannot say enough about our experience yesterday – it was so well organized! The highlight was to be able to cheer on and encourage not only our daughter, but all of the children who participated. It was very rewarding to see so many children out being active and to see the enthusiasm, pride, and the satisfaction of such an accomplishment on their faces (and those of parents). I will never forget the image of watching my daughter come across the finish line and the pride I felt! Thank you for bringing this event to BC!
This event was so impressive in how well it was organized! There are a lot of moving parts and it was excellent!
