2018 Kids Triathlon

The Naper Carriage Hill Swim & Racquet Club proudly presents the 2018 Kids Triathlon on July 1, at 8 am (Rain or Shine). Registration will open Memorial Day weekend 2018 and close on or about June 16 
or when the 100-athlete capacity is met, whichever is first.

This event is all about promoting self confidence and a healthy lifestyle that the sport of triathlon can create in our children.

The NCH Kids Triathlon will take place at Naper Carriage Hill Swim & Racquet Club and throughout the surrounding neighborhood for the running route. We will again be utilizing the DuPage River path for the bike route. This will continue to help our volunteers keep a safer eye on the athletes, and keeps them away from traffic as much as possible.
 
The event is limited to the first 100 registrants, so please register as early as possible.  A parent or guardian is required to volunteer for the event in order for the child to participate. Sorry, no refunds are available if your athlete has to withdraw after registration. Also no refunds if event is cancelled due to weather.

There will be food, drinks, and fun for all youth athletes. All Triathletes will receive a participation medal, T-shirt, race pack and enjoy a party on the pool grounds upon completion.
