At approximately 11am, there will be a “Kids Race” starting from the beach. The exact start time is TBA, and will be based on the number of competitors from the Olympic Distance still on the course. All competitors will be expected to be ready by 11am, as this will be the earliest we start (and hope to start). This race is open to all kids, ages 7-17. If your son or daughter is 7 years old by December 31st, 2008, then they can compete.

More details will follow as they become available. Check back for information on: course maps, distances, start times, packet pick-up, USAT membership, etc…

The 2008 Fronhofer Tool Triathlon at Lake Lauderdale & Kids Triathlon will be USA Triathlon sanctioned. Therefore, all USAT rules will be in effect. See below for rules pertaining to the Kids Triathlon. A complete listing of the USAT rules can be read online at www.usatriathlon.org

Kids Triathlon Rules

All youth ages 17 and under are required to be annual USAT members to compete in sanctioned events. The cost of an annual youth membership is $5 per year. All membership money, forms and event waivers for youth membership purchases must be submitted to USAT after the event for processing. For more information on the Youth Annual Membership, please visit the USAT membership section of the web site.

The age group of a participant will be determined by age on Dec. 31 of the event year, not by age on race day. For example: If you turn 25 years old in July of 2008, you will race and be ranked in the 25-29 age group for the entire 2008 season.
The age up rule applies to youth events as well.
