Body Quest Paradise Kids Duathlon
August 24 @ 9:00 am
Children will run, cycle (on a groomed trail) and then run again in this exciting event, finishing under the same finish line as the adult triathlon. This duathlon is designed to offer kids and young teens the opportunity to experience and succeed in the sport in a positive environment.
The distances for the Paradise Kids Duathlon are much shorter than those in the adult event and are chosen so that the majority of kids will finish this event confidently, successfully, and have fun at the same time.
Age groups for the event start at 5-6 and go all the way up in two year groups all the way to 13-15 years old. Please note that your child can be as young as 4 as long as they will be 5 by the end of 2019.
You can enter this race with a minimum of equipment. All you need is:
- A bike (suitable for gravel road)
- An approved helmet (ANSI, SNELL, etc)
- Running shoes
- Appropriate clothing (check the weather on the day of the event)
- Enthusiasm, determination and a sense of fun
Date: Saturday, August 24 2019 – 9am start.
TriNL is accepting applications for event sanctioning for the 2019 season.
Event organizers are invited to download our Race Director Handbook to learn about how to hold a multi-sport event, and the requirements associated with sanctioning.
Sanctioning applications are filled out and submitted online. You will also need to submit additional documentation including an Event Emergency Plan; permit applications from applicable municipal, provincial, and federal authorities; and maps of courses and related facilities.
This process offers an excellent checklist to ensure your event is safe and secure for all participants, volunteers, and other stakeholders and that the event is conducted fairly for all competitors.
Your sanctioned event will also benefit from the knowledge and experience of TriNL board members and associates, as well as promotional opportunities through our website, news feed, and member email list. TriNL will assign a Technical Delegate (a certified triathlon official) to review the sanctioning document and work with your event team to make the event successful for everyone.
