Kids triathlon planned for Sept. 22

The Gorge Kids Triathlon is a fun and safe entry-level triathlon open to all elementary aged kids.

Three separate start waves accommodate kids in grades K-1, 2-3, and 4-5, and are designed to allow kids of varied skill levels to participate.

The swim portion is inside the designated swim park; non-swimmers may walk/run through shallow water along the shore.

Entry fee for the Gorge Kids Triathlon is $20 prior to Sept. 20 and $30 on the day of the event. All participants receive a T-shirt and swag bag!

Proceeds from the event go to Hood River County elementary schools to enhance physical education programs and promote health and fitness.

Registration opens at 8:30 a.m. with pre-race instructions at 9:45 a.m. by the swim beach. A closing ceremony will honor all participants. Food vendors will be on site selling lunch items, coffee and other refreshments.
