Start your summer off right and join the Fort Collins Children's Triathlon/ Duathlon and Family Fun Run on Saturday, June 2, 2018.
This event is an opportunity to get outside and get active with the whole family! We have events for all ages and a super fun pancake breakfast with music and raffle prizes after the race. This is not a competitive race, so just come on out and enjoy a beautiful morning with your family.
This is a great event for the new duathlete or triathlete as you can do the entire event with your child. To participate in the triathlon, children must be between 6 and 14 years old on race day. There is no age limit on the duathlon but we ask that you participate with the younger riders.
Challenge by Choice! Choose your level on race morning based on your child's abilities.
Again this year we are offering a combined category of duathlon/triathlon for those families who have children participating in both the triathlon and duathlon. You do need to specify who is participating in which race so we have accurate numbers but we do understand things change. If your child wants to switch from the triathlon to the duathlon, or from the duathlon to the triathlon, please email the race organizers at [email protected] to check to see if we have availablity to switch. This likely is not an issue but we need to make sure our numbers do not go too high in any one event.
*Please note: T-shirts are included with registration for our child participants ages 0-14. T-Shirts for participants 15 and up are available at a cost of $5. Please order any desired adult t-shirts when you register.
Please check out our event website to answer more of your questions. We hope to see you there!
