We are excited to have the first Wrightsville Beach Sprint Youth Triathlon. The youth triathlon will begin immediatly after the sprint triathlon has completed the swim. Athletes will swim an out and back in the IntraCoastal Waterway, climb up the latter and run to Transition #1. They will run through TA just like all of the adult athletes and bike off the WB Island up Airlie Rd. At the top of Airlie, instead of taking a left like the adult athletes, they will take a right and head back toward the beach. The youth triathlon run will run around Wrightsville Beach Loop and cut off from the main adult athletes at the end of N. Channel. They will proceed straight at this point and finish at the adult finish line.
Friday 9/28: There will be a mandetory meeting for all youth participants at 5:00pm at Wrightsville Beach Park.
Youth athletes must be 8 years of age have some experience in each sport to participant. They will be swimming open water, and carrying their bikes over the Heide Trask Drawbridge. They will need to mount and dismount in and out of the adult transition area.
A great prep race for kids to do is the YMCA Youth triathlon in August. More info here
