This summer, kids ages 7 to 14 and their friends can enjoy five triathlons that are designed just for kids! Kids TRI for Kids offers safe races where kids can learn the value of fun competition. The initiative of Kids TRI for Kids is to provide friendly competition and also help kids form healthy fitness habits by taking part in affordable fitness options, including swimming, biking and running.
The Kids TRI for Kids schedule for 2022 is as follows:
- June 12 – Greenfield: Kathy Dowling Aquatics Center
- July 4 – Zionsville: Zionsville High School
- July 31 – TRI Indy: White River State Park
- Aug 14 – Indianapolis: Riviera Club
- Aug 28 – Greenwood: Freedom Springs Aquatics
Kids are encouraged to complete one, or all, of the summer events. For kids completing the first race, they will receive a Kids TRI for Kids t-shirt. After the second race, kids will receive a KTFK water bottle. The third race participants will receive a sling bag. The 4th KTFK racers will receive a trophy.
Kids TRI for Kids offers Triathlon options that include swimming, biking and running – all events the kids love to do all summer anyway. This is a great way to challenge the kids in a more structured, yet fun, setting. There is also a Duathlon option consisting of just running and biking events.
Kids TRI for Kids partners with Indianapolis area kids’ charities such as Best Buddies, a non-profit that helps build one-to-one friendships and employment options for individuals who have intellectual and developmental disabilities, plus help all kids get involved with physical activity, and to raise much needed funds.

ABOUT KIDS TRI FOR KIDS
Kids TRI for Kids was started in 2008 by Meg Gates Osborne, a swim coach and former IU swimmer, to expand fitness awareness to all kids. The events consist of swimming, biking, and running – all affordable fitness options for kids. The goal is to promote the value of fun competition as well as physical activities that can be carried into adulthood. A secondary purpose is to raise funds and promote interest in Indianapolis area kids’ charities such as Best Buddies, in order to also show participants the concept of giving back.
