The University of Wisconsin-Superior’s Campus Recreation will host a triathlon for kids ages 6 to 14 on Saturday, August 11, beginning at 8 a.m. in the Marcovich Wellness Center.
Participants in three age groups will take part in biking around the UW-Superior campus, running in the Marcovich Wellness Center Fieldhouse, and swimming in the Joan Hendrick Swimming Pool. Distances for each event vary by age group. All participants must have a bike, bike helmet, running shoes, and swim wear.
“UW-Superior’s Campus Recreation is all about giving kids the opportunity to accomplish something fun and rewarding,” said Jarod Meyer, UW-Superior’s Intramural Coordinator.
Finishers will be recognized with a medal and hot dog, and all participants will receive a T-shirt and race goody bag. Concessions will be available for purchase.
Registration is due by Friday, August 3, at 3 p.m. Registration forms are available online at uwsuper.edu/recreation/communityrec. All participants must complete a liability waiver before participating. Check-in and race bag pickup begin at 7 a.m. the day of the race in the Marcovich Wellness Center.
