Traverse City Youth Triathlon
The Traverse City Youth Triathlon is a fun and challenging event. Young athletes swim, bike and run in this 3-event race that not only promotes fitness but improves your child's self confidence as they cross the finish line on their own.
A great introduction to the sport, TCYT offers a short swim in a lap pool, followed by a safe bike ride and run on a path. Youth triathletes will transition just like adults in secure T1/T2 areas. We strongly encourage friends and family to come cheer on these young competitors for one of the best spectator events of the season.
All events will be held at the Grand Traverse Civic Center in Traverse City, MI.
