Sportsplex Tri for Kids completed its 10th year last year!

Unfortunately due to construction at the Sportsplex the aquatic center will be unavailable for use in the summer of 2023.

In an effort to still provide a fun experience for our athletes we are excited to offer a DU athlon instead of a TRI athlon for the summer of 2023.  In this event athletes will run, bike, run instead of swim, bike, run!

This race is USAT sanctioned which means that our athletes race dependent on their age on 12/31/2023.  It also means that a USAT membership will be required by our participants.  This only applies to the kids tri not to the small fry race.

Please come join us on 8/5/23!!

Du or Du not there is no Tri is our slogan this year!!

We can only guarantee you receive a Tshirt if you register by 7/17!!

About US

The Sportsplex Tri For Kids began as a dream of Nicole Carter, Sarah Herren, and Kimberly Myers.
The local American Cancer Society originally held a Small Fry Tri in the summer of 2012 for kids ages 2-6 to help raise money for cancer research.  Building on the success of the first Small Fry Tri, Nicole, Sarah and Kimberly began planning an even bigger event for the following year.
In the summer of 2013 the Sportsplex Kids Triathlon was held alongside the Small Fry Tri for children ages 6-15. That year 200 kids participated in the Sportsplex Kids Tri, and 100 kids participated in the Small Fry Tri. As a result of an outstanding turnout, the Sportsplex Tri for Kids was able to donate $10,000 to the American Cancer Society.
The 2013 Sportsplex Kids Triathlon was awarded Innovative Program and Special Event of the Year award by the Alabama Recreation and Parks Association for this outstanding feat. This year the Sportsplex Tri for Kids hopes to continue their efforts to benefit a great cause and to keep kids active!
The 2014 Sportsplex Kids Triathlon grew even more with 225 racers ages 6-15, and the Small Fry Tri maxed out with 100 participants and it has continued to grow since.
