First Security Kids’ Triathlon Training date set

Kids who will be six to 15 years old by the end of this year are eligible to attend.  The August 6 Triathlon event is one of the country’s premier youth triathlons for all kids, not just kids who participate in triathlons. To register for the training day and/or the Triathlon, visit 
“The training day is crucial for those who have never completed a triathlon and for those who think they can never do one,” said Shannon Milam, Race Director for the Kids’ Triathlon. “At the end of the day, children will know what a triathlon is, how to set realistic goals and how to achieve them,” she said.
“Kids will also learn the value of being part of a team and how to form or join one,” said Pete Tanguay, Team Coordinator. “Kids who form teams have the added benefit of accountability during training and someone to cheer for (and to cheer for them) during the event.  Teams are simply three or more participants who get together and decide to be a team.  Whether it is a group of friends at school or their neighborhood or the swim team they compete with, kids enjoy being on a team when competing in individual sports.”
