RETURNING IN 2017:
Sunday, June 4th – start time 8:45am
Athletes ages 7-15 can join in the fun! They will swim, bike and run in the Quassy Kids Triathlon! This will be a fun and safe event for your kids. The swim takes place in the shallow waters of Lake Quassapaug and the bike and run will be on closed roads to ensure all athletes are safe, they will finish their day with a sprint down the Rev3 finish chute, just like the pros!

After a short run up from the lake, athletes will hop on their bikes and exit Quassy Amusement park onto Middlebury Rd which will already be closed to traffic for the adult race. 7-10 year old’s will ride on loop of the 4K out and back course with a slight hill coming back to the park. Kids 11-15 will turn around near the entrance of the park to repeat the loop, finishing the 8K course back at the transition area.
