2014 will be our inaugural year for our KIDS TRIATHLON in Venice, FL. We are thrilled to be adding more triathlon specific events for the future of the sport. This will be an event where all kids can feel what it’s like to race like a pro!
The race will take place on Saturday Nov 8, 2014 and will be beginner friendly for all kids. The swim course is set just off the beach in the Gulf of Mexico at Sharky’s On the Pier. The bike will be a flat out and back course, consisting of Harbor Drive S. and Beach Rd. alongside Venice Airport. The run will be scenic and spectator friendly as it heads out and back on the pier, through the Sharky’s facility, then winds along the lakefront sidewalks at Maxine Barritt Park. Then all kids will get to finish their day with a sprint down the Rev3 finish line. We hope you are able to join us for all the triathlon fun!
Don’t let your entire family miss out on all of the fun. This is a great opportunity for the entire family to get to experience race day. Racers will team up with one of two family members between the ages of 4 and 16 and will follow maps to a variety of check points. Teams will have one hour to find and complete as many challenges as possible with a sprint down the Rev3 finish line to bring it home!

Total combined swim, bike and run mileage is 32 miles for the OLYMPIC-REV Triathlon race.
Stars aren’t the only things that shine at night—REV3 Glow runners do too! Come on out for an evening of family fun, where you can take part in a 5K or 1-mile fun run dressed to the hilt with glow sticks and all things bright and shiny. Flash and sparkle your way around the course and then relax and watch a movie as the day slowly fades away.
The course traverses the beautiful Maxine Barritt Park, newly renovated Lake Venice Golf Club, and even a small portion of the beach at Sharky’s on the Pier and is perfect for taking in the Florida sunset.
The 5K and 1-mile fun run will be untimed, so if you want to take your time and soak in the evening, you won’t have the pressure of a clock to beat. Each entrant will receive a glow-in-the-dark T-shirt, a glow stick, and access to a post-race movie and snacks.
We will be handing out special prizes for Glow runners who are the brightest, most flashy, and most reflective. Time to get ready to GLOW!
