|Dear TRi KiDS Milton Athletes and Families,
As pools, parks and recreation centres continue to be closed for the foreseeable future we have decided to reschedule TRi KiDS Milton to Sunday, September 6th (Labour Day weekend). The Town of Milton is not able to issue our permit for the new date at this time, and we caution that if the restrictions placed on large group gatherings is extended, or we don’t feel we can execute a safe event in September, we will cancel and provide options to registered athletes.
All registered athletes in the June 28th event will be transferred to the event on September 6th. Transfers are automatic and we do not need instruction to do so.
We offer the option of deferring your TRi KiDS Milton registration to any race in the 2021 season. To defer your registration send us an email and include athlete name(s). Please note locations and dates for 2021 are not confirmed and will not be announced until December. Deferral requests sent by email must be received by April 28th.
If the new date of September 6th does not work for your family we can offer a refund. We will be refunding your registration fee in full, including tax. The refund does not include the processing fee that was charged by Race Roster, a third party registration provider. To refund your registration fee send us an email no later than April 28th. Requested refunds will be processed after April 28th.
Registration for TRi KiDS Milton is closed to new registrations for now but may reopen at a later date.
Thank you for your understanding, loyalty and enthusiasm for the TRi KiDS Triathlon Series. Be safe and well. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Tara and Brad Melville and the TRi KiDS Race Crew
Your events are awesome. Your volunteers are great. Everything is so well organized. We have been to an orientation session before every event and it is so clear how much you care about the event being “as positive an experience as possible for everyone”! We are huge fans of Tri Kids! And given the sell-out of your events we are clearly not the only ones who are having a great experience with Tri Kids!
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!
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!
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.
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 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 !
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 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.
I just wanted to tell you how much my family and I enjoyed the TriKids event yesterday. The entire event was beautifully planned and organized. Despite the huge number of athletes participating in 3 different sports in different age groups, there was perfect coordination, punctuality, no chaos, no stress (at least, none to participants, parents and visitors!!) – it was amazing. Hats off to you and the whole team at TriKids.
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.
