Kids are Athletes Too at the Stamford KIC IT Triathlon

KICIT Triathlon near Stamford ApartmentsIt is not only adults and older teens who get to test their mettle at the Navigator’s Stamford KIC IT Triathlon this year. Children ages six to 13 can compete in their own fourth annual kids’ triathlon on Saturday, June 21 at 7:30 a.m. at the city’s beautiful Cove Beach.

Child athletes will be separated into three waves based on age, with six- and seven- year-old children swimming 50 meters, biking 0.8 miles and running half-a-mile; eight to 10 year olds swimming 50 meters, biking two-and-a-half miles and running half-a-mile; and 11 to 13 year olds swimming 150 meters, biking four miles and running a full mile. Prizes will be given to the winners in each age group, and every child will receive a shiny medal when they cross the finish line.

No matter the age of your little athlete or whether this is their first or fifth triathlon, the Navigators Stamford KIC IT Kids Triathlon is a fantastic opportunity to teach them that a healthy lifestyle can lead to great self-confidence and the chance to meet new friends who share similar interests.

Only 250 of these dedicated mini athletes will be admitted to the race, for which there will be no walk-up registration available this year. Cost for entry is $40 per child. Click here to register.

With only a few lights and about 10 minutes separating Cove Beach from Stamford apartments at Hoyt Bedford, Morgan Manor and The Townhouse, residents with rambunctious or couch-potato children alike can easily take their offspring to this amazing beachside activity, and younger children will love to see their older siblings compete.
