Ages 6 through 10 years will swim 50 meters, bike four miles, and run one mile. Ages 11 through 15 years will swim 150 meters, bike four miles, and run one mile.

Race packets will be available from 7 to 7:45 a.m. the day of the event. The race will start promptly at 8 a.m.

Register early to get a discount. The entry fee is $30 until Sept. 5 and then $40 until Sept. 14. There will be no race day registration. A portion of the money collected will be put toward building the Bierwagen Interpretive Site Project at the Orchard Springs Campground.

The entry fee into the park is included as part of the race registration. In addition, each participant will receive a T-shirt and medal. Plus, there will be water and electrolyte beverages available in the transition area.

This is the fifth year NID has hosted the Kids Triathlon at Rollins Reservoir as part of the district’s efforts to provide outstanding outdoor recreational opportunities at its reservoirs for the community.
