Posted

Mission Ridge Ski Team (MRST) is hosting the 2nd Annual Kids Triathlon Saturday, July 8, in Walla Walla Point Park in Wenatchee. The event is sponsored by Artisan Flooring and begins at 9 a.m.

The event is for kids ages 6-14. Distances for each leg of the swim, bike and run vary by age category. The event begins with the swim leg in the swimming area near the Walla Walla Point Park playground. Children will be able to touch in the swimming area and lifeguards from the Wenatchee Racquet and Athletic Club will supervise the water events.

After exiting the water, participants will transition to the bike leg. Participants need to bring their own bikes. The event finishes with a run to the finish line. The top three in each age category will receive medals.

“We are so excited to host the kids triathlon for a second year,” said Lindsay Davisson, MRST’s administrator and Youth Ski League head coach. “Our goal is to inspire kids to get moving on and off the ski hill and have fun all at the same time.”

No prior experience is required. The event is limited to the first 100 competitors per age group. The cost to register is $45. All participants will receive a t-shirt. For more information and to register visit mrst.us.
