2021 Findlay Youth Triathlon

Register Now

Committed to Developing Champions in Sport and in Life

Registration is now open for the 2021 Findlay Youth Triathlon. Ages 7-18 are eligible to register and experience the fun and excitement of the triathlon. It’s a morning of friendly competition and physical activity that can lead to a lifetime of fitness. The event is designed for all levels. Previous triathlon experience is not required.

Triathlon is an exciting sport for young children because it involves three activities that every child enjoys – swimming, cycling and running. A triathlon is an individual event with segments running consecutively until all three elements are completed.
