Hy-Vee IronKids Triathlon in Waterloo July 13th


The Hy-Vee IronKids Triathlon is returning to Waterloo on July 13 as part of the 2013 Hy-Vee IronKids Midwest series.

The Hy-Vee IronKids Midwest Series includes 20 youth triathlons taking place from May through August in Hy-Vee cities located across eight states.

IronKids events are coordinated by World Triathlon Corporation (WTC), which operates Ironman, Ironman 70.3, and 5150 Series triathlons at venues throughout the world.

The top 10 finishers in each age division at the IronKids events will qualify to compete in the Hy-Vee IronKids U.S. Championships, to be held Saturday, August 31 (Labor Day weekend) in Des Moines.

The Hy-Vee IronKids Triathlon will be held at George Wyth State Park on Saturday, July 13, beginning at 8 a.m. The event is open to boys and girls ages six through 15. An IronKids event is formatted around the same basic swim-bike-run protocol as an adult triathlon, with distances adjusted based on the age of the participants.

Registration for the Waterloo event is available online at www.ironkids.com through July 13. On-site registration will be available on Friday, July 12 during packet pickup. Volunteers from the community are also being sought to help with everything from venue set-up to packet pickup to serving as race course marshals.
