CMAK has secured Great Hollow Lake at Wolfe Park in Monroe CT to stage a family friendly Race4Chase Kid’s Triathlon on Sunday, July 9th, 2017.
The Race4Chase Kids Triathlon is open to any child ages 6-12 (age as of 12/31/16).
Check-in will begin at 7:00am. Transition Area will open at 7:30am, and close at 8:45am. All athletes will need to be set up by 8:45am, in order to attend pre-race safety meeting and opening ceremonies on the beach beginning at 8:45am.
Ages 6-8 will complete a 50 meter lake swim, 2 kilometer bike ride, and 1 kilometer run in side Wolfe Park, beginning at 9:15am.
Ages 9 and 10 will complete a 100 meter lake swim, 3 kilometer bike ride, and 1 kilometer run inside Wolfe Park, beginning at 10:00am.
Ages 11 and 12 will complete a 200 meter lake swim, a 5 kilometer bike ride, and a 2 kilometer run inside Wolfe Park, beginning at 10:45am.
Awards will be presented at approximately 12:00pm for all top males and females in all age groups. We are working on other fun activities to take place in the park at the completion of the race!
This race is USAT sanctioned, which allows us to provide the highest quality, safest event possible. A list of USAT rules will be sent out to all participants prior to the race, as well as information about parking, race-prep, etc. One should note that the swim for the two youngest age groups will be in shallow waters where participants can stand for their safety and well being.
Once you complete the initial registration page, you will come to a page about USAT membership information. There will be options to select a one-day membership or an annual membership or to enter the athlete’s current membership number. If your child may participate in another race this year, it is advisable that your purchase the annual membership, but that is up to you. All participants MUST have a USAT membership (either one-day or annual) in order to race as per the sanction requirements.
This race will be sold out when it reaches 250 participants.
Please note that there are opportunities for entry fee waivers for families that need this assistance so that every child that would like to participate can have the opportunity. Please inquire through the contact information posted on Run Sign Up.
