The 6th Annual Peachtree Corners Kids Triathlon is scheduled for Saturday, August 13th, 2011 at 8 AM.

Each year, the goal is to provide a fun and supportive environment for local youth to experience a low-key triathlon experience.
We have made several changes to the course and age groups to improve everyone’s experience:
New Course! The pool swim and transition area have moved to Simpsonwood Retreat Center. This will provide a safer transition area away from the hill near the Peachtree Corners Swim and Racquet Club pool. The bike course will continue to loop on Jones Bridge Circle and the run course will remain in Simpsonwood Retreat Center.
New Age Divisions! Based on feedback from parents, we added a new age division to better match the abilities of participants. The age divisions and distances for the race are:
Juniors (6-8 years old): 50 yard swim (2 laps), 2 mile bike (1 loop), 0.5 mile run
Intermediate (9-12 years old): 150 yard swim (6 laps), 4 mile bike (2 loops),1.0 mile run
Seniors (13-15 years old): 200 yard swim (8 laps), 6 mile bike (3 loops), 1.5 mile run
We cap the race at 120 entries. The race has had full participation in prior years, so please respond soon. The deadline for entry forms is July 29.
The race requires at least one volunteer per participant. Please choose your volunteer preference on the entry site. Additional volunteers are, of course, welcome!
Please forward this information on to other families that might be interested in participating.
See you on Race Day!
