We request one volunteer per family to help man the course and provide a safe environment for everyone.

Since our triathlons, duathlons & adventure races are sanctioned by USA Triathlon, all kids (5-17) must be USAT members to participate in these events. Go to www.usatmembership.com for membership details – it only takes a few minutes to sign up and costs only $15 for the whole year. (If you plan on only doing 1 race in a year you can opt for the $10 1 day membership instead. This can be done at packet pickup). Your child must present their membership card to pick up their packet (a temporary card can be printed from the USAT website).

Bike is on dirt trails, narrow but flat for 5-7 yr olds and single track dirt trails for 8+.
Run is on dirt trails.
Special Tests We can’t tell you what they will be until race day but rest assured they will make you look silly and be a blast. Remember that this is a race for the KIDS with assistance provided by the adult. Let’s all make this a special experience for them.

PARKING Please park in the parking lots marked by KIT or event signs.

AWARDS We will present all finishers with an award and enter their bib number into a raffle filled with goodies. Age Group awards will be presented at the end of the race. Results will be posted on the website that week. KIT strives to foster motivation in fitness rather than competition against others.

TRAINING SESSIONS All registered participants may attend 1 free training session (all sessions included for ClubKIT members) to get them familiar with the race course, transitions and get any questions answered. We highly recommend these sessions to assure your racer they will be comfortable on race day. All sessions will be held on location at Harris Lake (meet in the Cypress Shelter parking lot) and conducted by KIT staff. Bring everything you would on race day as we will ride and run the course. ALL kids under 10 will need an adult to accompany them on the ride & run. NO exceptions.
Please reserve a space by filling out the form sent to you about a month before race day or shortly after registering, whichever is later. If you do not receive this link, please contact us at kidsintraining@nc.rr.com and make sure you receive a confirmation. Please check your email and/or www.trianglemtb.com to make sure there are no trail closures or session cancellations before you get ready to leave for a training session.
