More disappointing news – we have decided to cancel both TRi KiDS Okanagan, scheduled for July 12th and TRi KiDS Calgary, scheduled for July 19th. All registered athletes have the option of deferring their registration until next season, or take the automatic refund. An email was sent on Sunday. Read more here.
Take care and be safe.
|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
Dear TRi KiDS Burnaby Athletes and Families,
We are very sad and disappointed to announce the cancellation of TRi KiDS Burnaby scheduled for May 31, 2020. Under the circumstances and in consultation with the City of Burnaby we have made this difficult decision.
We will be refunding your registration fee in full, including tax. The refund will not include the processing fee that was charged by our third party registration provider. Refunds may take some time to process and we appreciate your patience.
Unfortunately we cannot offer a deferral to TRi KiDS Burnaby 2021. As you may know C.G. Brown Pool will be closing for renovation this fall and it is expected to take two years to complete. At this time we do not have an alternate site.
Thank you for your loyalty and enthusiasm for the TRi KiDS Triathlon Series. Be safe and well.
Tara and Brad Melville and the TRi KiDS Race Crew
Dear TRi KiDS and Families,
Like all event organizers in Canada and around the world, we have been monitoring the news and government updates regarding COVID-19.
We continue to plan for all 2020 TRi KiDS races starting with our first race at the end of May, still over two months away.
We are working closely with our city partners in each race location and continue to review the latest regional information to assess the public health risks based on this rapidly changing environment.
If the status of any of our races is impacted we will communicate these changes in a timely fashion.
Thank you for understanding.
Volunteer registration is now open for the season. We would love to see you back again…or if you’ve never volunteered with TRi KiDS give it a TRi! Volunteers are such an important part of the races and we are very fortunate to have worked with so many enthusiastic volunteers over the years. Some have been with us since the beginning – 11 years!
Grab a friend or family member and join us for a race (or two).

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 event was so impressive in how well it was organized! There are a lot of moving parts and it was excellent!
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!
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 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.
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.
Just wanted to send you a quick note of appreciation for another great event. This being our 4th event with you, we can see how your sporting events are extremely well managed, very safe and most importantly…..fun! Your events mark fun as a high priority. Tri Kids events focus on building positive, self esteem goals that we as a family all benefit from. So to Tara, Brad Staff and all Volunteers of Run Well Events…..great job and thank you!
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 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.
