New Albany Kids Triathlon

Presented by
Nationwide Children's Hospital

Saturday, July 20, 2019 — New Albany, Ohio

ALERT: CHANGES DUE TO WEATHER

The New Albany Kids Triathlon event begins at the Plain Township Aquatic Center and the Wexner Community Park in New Albany, Ohio. This beginner-friendly and spectator friendly kids triathlon is for kids 14 and under. There are divisions and distances for different age groups. If your child can swim, ride a bike, and run, then come out and join us. Younger kids who cannot swim can walk and splash their way in the pool and ride a tricycle if they cannot ride a two-wheeler. All participants must wear a helmet during the bike portion. Then celebrate at the Finish Line Party with participants, families and race partners at Wexner Community Park! Come enjoy the fun with us as we emphasize the importance of exercise and having fun!

*** ALERT!! ***

Please be aware of some important changes (listed below) for the New Albany Kids Triathlon scheduled for Saturday morning, July 20th. Because of the extreme temperatures and humidity that are expected for Saturday, we are modifying the start and arrival times as well as the distances covered for the different segments of the Triathlon.

Below are the new times and distances that will be in effect. For each of the three start times below, arrival is required only 30 minutes before the start so as to avoid having kids (and their parents) standing in line waiting for their turn. For example, the 11-14 age group will now start at 7:30am instead of 8:00am and arrival must occur at 7:00am.

These changes have been implemented for the safety of the participants. The distance and time changes were made in consultation with Nationwide Children's Hospital Sports Medicine personnel. If conditions warrant further changes at the time of the event, they will be implemented. Medical personnel will be stationed on site should the need occur.
