Our kids triathlon gives youngsters a great opportunity to compete in one of the fastest growing sports in the United States. This event is designed for any youth, ages 6-14, regardless of athletic ability or prior triathlon experience. The courses and distances were created to be achievable for all participants. At the Omaha Kids Triathlon, participants compete in age-appropriate distances with an emphasis on fitness, fun and safety.* We want all our young triathletes to walk away from the event with a sense of pride in knowing that they completed a triathlon. There is also an option for a relay team.
*Children may wear swimming aids such as life jackets for the swim course

Kids 6 to 8: Swim 50 Meters, Bike 2.5 Miles, Run .5 Mile
