2024 Rocketkidz Rookies Triathlon

 
June 9, 2024 (Still to be determined)
Paula G. Manship YMCA
8100 YMCA Plaza Drive
Baton Rouge, LA 
 
We are back and better than ever for another year of biking, swimming and running! RocketKidz Rookies Triathlon is an event specially designed to introduce children ages 3-10 to the sport of triathlons.
 
3-4 yr olds: swim 15 yds, bike 1/4 mile, run 100 yds. ONE parent may accompany the child on the course. 
5-6 yr olds: swim 25 yds, bike 1/2 mile, run 1/4 mile.
7-10 yr olds: swim 25 yds, bike 1 mile, run 1/2 mile. 
 
Training wheels are acceptable for all ages. Please ensure your child's bike is in good working order prior to the event. 
We've got non-swimmer divisions where a child can use flotation devices. It is short, it is fun, it is a great way for your child to play and be a triathlete.

Cancellation/Refund Policy: NO REFUNDS. NO TRANSFERS. We purchase supplies/goodies for this race well in advance of the event and cannot offer refunds. Racers cannot give their race entries to another person to race (liability issue). All RKF events benefit the Foundation, so even if you cannot race your entry fees are going to fantastic programming!
This race will not be rescheduled. The cancellation of this event is at the discretion of race directors. The race may start during light rain. Cancellation will occur if thunder or lightning is present in the area. We will do everything in our power to allow the event to take place, but we will not compromise the safety of our little racers.  
 
Course Description 
Our Rookies Race will take place at Manship YMCA. The swim takes place in the pool. The bike takes place on the campus around the Y completely closed to traffic. The run will be in the grassy area around the ball field.
 
The race distances are approximate and allow for safest course we can muster on the roads and sidewalks. The focus of this event is to present triathlon to the children in a way that gets them motivated to stay active and, hopefully, consider participating in runs and bikes and swims .... and any other physical activity.
