Hollywood Y to Host Youth Triathlon — All Hollywood Kids Invited to Participate

Calling All Young Athletes!  Kids from ages 5-12 are invited to join in the fun on Saturday, June 15 at 9 am when the Hollywood Y and the Leadership Hollywood Class 43 host the first annual Hollywood YMCA Youth Triathlon.

“The focus of the Triathlon is to get kids educated and excited about fitness and exercise,” said Matt Libby, Executive Director of the YMCA of South Florida.  “With childhood obesity at an all-time high, we feel that it’s essential to get the word out to kids that fitness can be fun.”

 

The big event will be held at the Y on Taft Street just west of I-95, and will include swimming, biking and running for three age groups, as highlighted below.  The $20 per child entry fee will include the supervised races, snacks, entertainment and prizes for everyone.

 

Age Groups

5-7 Year olds

25 meter swim, 400 meter bike & 400 meter run

 

8-9 Year Olds

50 meter swim, 600 meter bike, 400 meter run

 

10-12 Year Olds

100 meter swim, 800 meter bike, 400 meter run

Members of the Hollywood Police Dept. will be on hand to talk with the kids about safety.

Sponsorship opportunities are still available for the Hollywood YMCA Youth Triathlon.   You can register by clicking here.    For more info on registration or sponsorships, contact Matt Libby at 954 989 9622 or [email protected]
