Firebolt Youth Triathlon

Sat April 4, 2020 Sierra Vista, AZ 85635 US Directions
2020 Firebolt Youth Tri cancelled

Bolt Mulltisport is a family made up of the participants (families) who have been loyal to us, the volunteers who give up their time to help us at each and every event, the sponsors who support our mission, the race planning team (and their families) who put their heart and souls into these races and the community and city of Sierra Vista that hosts our top-tier events.  I hope that we all come out of this crisis with a greater appreciation for the things that matter most and also the things that we take for granted.

Needless to say, it was a very difficult decision to cancel this race, but we had no choice.

Your 3 options are going to be:
1st option) Defer your registration which we hope you'll choose.  View this page which explains "how to."
Basically, you will be getting a coupon code which will be good towards one of the following events (as an individual or team) for the next two races which are: Thunderbolt Youth Triathlon on August 8, 2020 (Registration will open by May 8, 2020) or Firebolt Youth Triathlon (April of 2021, exact date TBD)

 2nd option) Request a refund which will include a $5.00 processing fee. *

3rd option) Do nothing and consider your race registration fees a donation to the tax deductable 501(c)3 organization Bolt Multisport, Inc. (EIN: 82-2047028).  This allows us to continue offering great events, training opportunities and development of the organization.

*We are in the process of creating a refund account with Runsignup and this may take a few days to a week for funds to be available.  This was not something we anticipated needing, hence the delay.

Thank you for supporting us and we are doing everything we can to ensure that you will continue to have multisport opportunities in this community

Firebolt Youth Triathlon is a USAT Sanctioned Swim, Bike, Run event for kids ages 5-17 years old.  It will consist of (5-10 year olds) 50 yd swim, 3 mile bike, .5 mile run and (11-17 year olds) 200 yd swim, 6 mile bike, 1 mile run.  Awards will be presented to age group winners and overall winners in each race as well as top relay teams.  The goal of the Firebolt is to provide an opportunity for kids to engage in the sport of triathlon, have fun and be a part of something amazing.  Participants will receive an overall time at the finish.  They will also recieve a t-shirt, a one of a kind challenge coin, a full race bag of goodies and the pride that goes along with accomplishing something amazing.  Participate as an individual (do the whole thing yourself) OR as part of a Relay Team (swimmer, cyclist or runner) that you form.  Among other things this race is very well supported by volunteers, sponsors and the community.  We have vendors, food at the finish, drinks and a slip and slide finish.  

Bolt Multisport (a 501(c)3 organization) races strive to be inclusive events with the ability to make accommodations for children with physical or developmental disabilities. If your child would like to participate, and they have a diagnosed disability which could fairly and reasonably be addressed with an accommodation, please encourage them to participate. Our goal is to help each one of them make it to the finish line by allowing a measure of help.  There will be an opportunity to explain and request accommodations in the registration process.

**Very Important: Kids will be placed in the age group according to their age on December 31 of the current year.  For example, if your child turns 11 in November, they would race against 11-12 year olds on race day (even if they are 10 right now).  This also means that 17 year olds turning 18 in the year of the race are not eligible to race.  On the other end of the spectrum, a 4 year old turning 5 by  December 31 of the race year is eligible to race (against other 5-6 year olds).  This is a USAT rule, is maintained through all USAT races and ensures consistency and fairness from one race to the next. 

***Early in 2018, we decided that we needed to sustain Bolt Multisport opportunities for every kid growing up in Southeastern Arizona for the foreseeable future. Bolt Multisport has always had a benevolent purpose. It made sense that we transition from being a private organization to a Non-Profit. Hence, at the end of May, 2018, we officially received our 501(c)(3) designation. This means that donors can deduct contributions they make to us under IRC Section 170. We are also qualified to receive tax deductible bequests, devises, transfers or gifts under Section 2055, 2106 or 2522.
