NEW IN 2017 POCONOS KIDS REV
Kids ages 6-14 (7-15 USAT ages)* can join in the weekend race fun and swim, bike and run in the Pocono Kids Triathlon! The Pocono Kids Race is great for the first timer and for the seasoned youth triathlete.
The swim takes place in the lagoon of Lake Harmony, and the bike and run will be on closed roads throughout the resort community, to ensure all athletes are monitored and safe. The best part is your kids will complete their race with a sprint down the Official Rev3 Finish Chute!
As a USA Triathlon sanctioned event, we must adhere to race age requirements, and an Athlete’s race age is determined by their actual age on December 31, 2017. As an example, if your athlete is 10-years old on race day, but turns 11 on or before Dec 31, 2017, they will race as an 11-year old. Conversely, if your child is 6 years old on race day, but will be 7 by December 31st, they can participate and will race as a 7 year old.
USA TRIATHLON ANNUAL YOUTH MEMBERSHIP
A USA Triathlon Annual Youth Membership ($10 per athlete) is required to participate. Purchase of a Membership is part of the registration process, if your athlete is not already a member.
BIKE & HELMET INSPECTION
Safety is our first priority and to participate, your athlete’s bike and helmet must pass a safety inspection by our local bike shop partner, Peterson’s Ski & Cycle, to ensure their equipment is road worthy, as outlined in USA Triathlon’s Competitive Youth Rules. Inspections are FREE and you can visit the bike shop three weeks leading up to race weekend, or on Friday at the expo. There are no inspections race morning. Once your triathlete’s equipment passes the safety inspection, a special waterproof “race sticker” will be placed on both the bike and helmet, which ensures access to Transition race morning. NO Sticker, NO Race, NO Exceptions.
REGISTRATION & PACKET PICKUP
Registration is open NOW! Packet pickup is on Friday from 5pm-7pm or 5:30am-6:30am on race day.
The transition area will be open for boys and girls participating in the kids race only, from 6:00am-6:45am. ONE Parent is allowed in transition during set up. ONCE THE RACE STARTS, PARENTS ARE NOT PERMITTED IN TRANSITION. Please respect this rule. Our crew will help and support your athletes, as needed. All athletes must attend a Mandatory Athlete Meeting at the start line on the beach at 6:50am.
