YES is excited to partner with the 2017 Columbia Threadneedle Investments Boston Triathlon to offer YES youth ages 15 and under complimentary entry to Kids Day at the Boston Triathlon on Saturday, July 29, 2017. The event will take place at Carson Beach in South Boston.
To receive the code for your complimentary entry to Kids Day, e-mail Nicky Franks, Track & Field Coordinator, at [email protected]. Please do not share your complimentary ticket code with others. It is intended for YES families only.
The Columbia Threadneedle Investment Boston Triathlon is Boston’s only triathlon. Kids Day is designed to introduce youth to the sport of triathlon and will feature activities dedicated solely to athletes ages 7 – 15, including the USA Triathlon sanctioned Kids Splash-and-Dash for athletes ages 7 – 15, the Kids Fun Run for athletes under the age of 7, and the Clif Kids Ride Zone, a mini-track for aspiring cyclists to have fun and work on their bike riding skills.
For the Kids Splash-and-Dash, athletes will be placed in one of four age groups: ages 7 – 8, ages 9 – 10, ages 11 – 12, and ages 13 – 15. The 7 – 8 and 9 – 10 age groups will swim 100 yards and run an untimed 1K. The 11 – 12 age group will swim 200 yards and run an untimed 2K. The 13 – 15 age group will swim 200 yards and run a timed 2K.
The swimming will take place at DCR Carson Beach in South Boston near the McCormack Bathhouse and will be in shallow water. The run will take place on the Harborwalk and the DCR Mother’s Rest Field.
The focus of the events is participation, rather than competition and is geared towards exposing youth participants to the world of multisports.
