Description: The Life is good Kid’s Triathlon will be organized by Scoogie Events, LLC & Life is good, GNS in North Wales, PA and staged on Saturday, August 23, 2014 to help raise funds for the Life is good Kid’s Foundation and bring exposure to beautiful Penllyn Club while also providing a fun, non-competitive atmosphere for kid’s to enjoy swimming, biking and running in the outdoors.
The Life is good Kid’s Triathlon will consist of various swim, bike and run distances depending on the age of the child racing. It will be a time trail start (meaning the kid’s will start the swim in a staggered manner depending on their age) and of course an awesome post-race festival with activities that kids will LOVE J
Swim: The swim will be held in an outdoor pool with enough lifeguards to make sure that every child is safe. The distance will depend on the age of the child. See below.
Transition Area: There will be an area for the competitors to put their bikes, shoes, helmets, etc., called “the transition area. After finishing the swim, the kids will come into the transition area to put on their biking gear, get their bikes and start the bike portion of the race.
Bike Course: The distance will depend on the age of the child. See below.
Run Course: The distance will depend on the age of the child. See below.
General Information: The most important factor will be the safety of the participants. The event will be altered or cancelled if it is deemed that for any reason the event is unsafe for the participants.
USAT Sanctioned: This event will be USATriathlon-sanctioned. Athletes must have a USAT membership or pay $10 for a one day membership if they do not have a current USAT membership.
We will have an Emergency Medical Vehicle and staff on-hand during the entire event.
Purpose: The purpose of this event is to promote multisport participation in the Youth, Families and Individuals, encouraging physical exercise and a healthy lifestyle. In addition, we would like to increase interest and visitors to the beautiful Penllyn Club and surrounding area and help promote participants to enjoy the area.
Our goal is also to raise funds for The Life is good Kid’s Foundation.
