THE RACE SEASON
The youth triathlon race season starts in March and ends around October. Our training sessions prepare athletes to participate in a variety of races including the Sunrise Series Kids Triathlon at Gleason Park, Indian Harbour Beach (twice/year) and the Iron Kids in Orlando. The Iron Kids is our goal race before the summer break. Every year a group of our club athletes participate in the Iron Kids as a team. Families also participate in a variety of other races in Florida. Team uniforms will be available for purchase early in the season which can be worn at all the races. Team uniforms consist of a team swim cap and a triathlon top with our logo. Additional items will be available at extra cost.
