TRi KiDS Race Distances

YEAR OF BIRTH is used to place athletes in the appropriate age group.  The athlete’s age on race day is not used for age group assignment. As an example, all athletes turning 8 in 2023, whether their birthday is in January or December, will be placed in the 8-9 age group. If you feel your child is not ready to be in the age category based on this criteria please contact us by email.

See Age Group Assignments page.

Sample Distance Chart for all Age Groups

Athletes swim, bike, then run.

The swim, bike and run distances vary at each race venue.  The chart below can be used as a guideline, showing the maximum distances.

Due to course safety concerns, not all races will have the 14-15 year old age category available.

* The pool length at TRi KiDS Burlington is 50m.

Distances specific to each race venue can be found on each event page.
