Vaco Brentwood Kids Triathlon
|Date||Saturday, August 17|
We're proud to announce the 3rd Edition of the Vaco Brentwood Kids Triathlon!
This family friendly event is being held in conjunction with the new Girls "Tri-It-On" Nashville.
Join Team Magic, our title sponsor Vaco, the Brentwood Endurance Athletic Team and our host, the Maryland Farms YMCA fun-filled, family event.
The Girls "Tri-It-On" Triathlon will be a ladies only triathlon using the same course as the older kids for the Brentwood Kid Tri, with the The Girls "Tri-It-On" taking place in the early part of the day, beginning at 7:00 am. The kids race will follow, with the first racers hitting the water at 9:30 am.
This race is sanctioned by USA Triathlon and as such we follow the standard "age up rule." The age of the racer is based on their age at the end of the year, 12/31/2013.
Safety: The goal for this event is to promote a healthy, active lifestyle for kids while keeping it FUN, FUN, FUN for competitors plus their family and friends. It is the management team's mission to bring you a safe, organized event so the fun just falls into place. Safety measures to note: 1) roads closed to traffic, 2) experienced race management and support staff, 3) controlled and secured staging area and course connector areas, 4) race number system to match kids with parents or guardians at any time.
Participation: This event is focused on crossing the finish line. Awards go to the top 3 winners of each age and gender 5 to 15, and ALL racers receive a participation award. In other words - EVERYONE IS A WINNER.
The main staging area is comprised of the transition area (where the bikes are staged while competitors are swimming and running) and the race finish line. The main staging is located in the front of the family-friendly Maryland Farms YMCA. Awards and post-race celebration will also be in this area.
