The 12th Annual Colgate Kids Tryathlon is just around the corner.   The race will take place on Thursday, May 5th (Coronation Day) at 8:00AM starting at the ISB and Nichada  pools.  The organizing committee is already working to make this the best Kids Triathlon ever.  We will again use timing chips that each tri-athlete will wear on their ankle to keep accurate time and to ensure the proper number of bike laps are completed.  We will also modify the relay so there is a relay for each of the distances below.  The distance the relay team must complete is based upon the oldest relay team member.  We will even allow one adult or teacher to be a part of each relay team.

The distances this year will be:

5-6:                      50m swim, 1 km bike, 450m run
7-8:                     100m swim, 2.5 km bike, 800m run
9-10:                   150m swim, 4.5 km bike, 1200m run
11-12:                 200m swim, 4.5 km bike, 1700m run
13-14:                 250m swim, 6.8 km bike, 2400m run
15+ :                   350m swim, 9.1 km bike, 3100m run

All families have to provide one volunteer to help on the day of the race.  Alternatively, in lieu of volunteering, a fee of THB 1,000 can be paid.  The Organizing Committee will use this money to hire High School students or others to help out on the day.

Please note that all kids must have their own bike and must use a helmet during the biking portion of the triathlon.
