Youth Triathlon Series

The Tampa Bay area Youth Triathlon Series is going on now and will end with a Sept. 26 event at the Gills Family YMCA in Trinity.

This year's Youth Triathlon Series is underway with races scheduled around the Tampa Bay area.

Organizers are particularly excited about the June 13 race in Carrollwood, featuring a car-free closed circuit.

The bike course will run from the Bob Sierra YMCA on Ragg Road around the Gaither High School parking lot, which will be closed to outside traffic. No law enforcement will be necessary.

Several other races are scheduled for later this summer, concluding with a Sept. 26 event at the Gills Family YMCA in Trinity.

The races are calibrated for young competitors: Ages 5-6 do a 25-yard swim, a 1-mile bike ride and a quarter-mile run. Ages 7-10 do a 100-yard swim, a 2-mile bike ride and a half-mile run. Ages 11 and up do a 200-yard swim, a 4-mile bike ride and a 1-mile run (although competitors 16 and up compete in a different division).
