The New Albany Kids Triathlon event begins at the Plain Township Aquatic Center and the Wexner Community Park in New Albany, Ohio. This beginner-friendly and spectator-friendly kids triathlon is for kids 14 and under. There are divisions and distances for different age groups. If your child can swim, ride a bike, and run, then come out and join us. Younger kids who cannot swim can walk and splash their way in the pool and ride a tricycle if they cannot ride a two-wheeler. All participants must wear a helmet during the bike portion. Then celebrate at the Finish Line Party with participants, families and race partners at Wexner Community Park! Come and enjoy the fun with us as we emphasize the importance of exercise and having fun!
