Even though there are no TRi KiDS races on the calendar this summer the season is all about enjoying the outdoors. Whether you’re taking daily family walks, brisk hikes or long bike rides, being physically active is more important than ever.
TRi KiDS at Home is an event that parents and athletes can create together and complete at home this summer. Triathlon combines three sports; swimming, biking and running but TRi KiDS at Home can be tailored to include any three activities. No pool, no problem, replace the swim portion with skipping rope or jumping on a trampoline. Take this opportunity to create your very own triathlon!
After completing the TRi KiDS at Home event parents can award their athlete with a 2020 TRi KiDS medal (sure to be a collectors item) and a snack!
TRi KiDS at Home fee is $18 for the first athlete and $5 for each additional athlete. Payment accepted by e-transfer only. Package includes a medal and snack for each athlete.
Be sure to post pictures of your athletes during and after your TRi KiDS at Home event, and share your ideas with others. Tag @ TRiKiDSTriathlonSeries and @ for a chance to win a TRi KiDS prize pack, including the 2020 designed hat! The random draw will take place in September.
To register, send us an email and include your family name, full mailing address and number of athletes participating (number of medals). You will receive a confirmation email and payment instructions. TRi KiDS at Home will be available all summer long while supplies last.
Have fun and stay active!
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.
“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.”
My two children age 10 and 12 just competed in their first tri in Ottawa today. I had to write to thank you for such an amazing first experience! My husband and I were amazed at the number of helpful volunteers and staff on the course. I have participated in many races but I have never seen one so well organized and managed from start to finish.
This event was so impressive in how well it was organized! There are a lot of moving parts and it was excellent!
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.
This was our family’s first time participating in a triathlon but we’ve participated in many events of different varieties and I must tell you, this was such a marvelously run event I am simply in awe. Such attention to so many details to make everything run smoothly, and such terrific staff/volunteers to ensure every kid had a positive experience. Planning and organization, enthusiasm and good humour, all played a role in making the whole event enjoyable for participants and spectators alike.
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.
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!
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!
