Triathlons are not just for adults or elite athletes! Kids are invited to swim, bike and run to the finish line at the Janesville Kids Triathlon. The race includes a 100 meter swim, a 2-1/2 mile bike and a 1/2 mile run for kids between the ages of 7-12. This opportunity is perfect for kids looking to have their first experience in triathlons. While awards will be given to the fastest in each age group, this event is not structured as a highly competitive race. Instead, this is a chance to celebrate health and fitness, encourage self-confidence, and most of all, have fun while being active. Online registration will begin April 1 at and will end on August 21.  Due to this being the event's first year, registration will be limited to the first 200 athletes, with on-site registration only available if capacity has not reached 200 participants. Free t-shirts are guaranteed for all participants registered by August 12. The course is set in Janesville's Rockport Park, and will utilize Rockport Pool and Peace Park Trail.  Packet pick up and informational meeting will be held on Friday, August 24 from 5:00-7:00PM at the Peace Park pavilion in Rockport Park.
