Now in its 11th year, The VHBG Youth Triathlon is a beginner-focused youth race which has a large impact on the local community. 100% of the revenue for this event goes to the VA Home for Boys & Girls. Over the past 10 years, this race has not only introduced the local community to triathlon but also greatly impacted the kids who reside at VHBG and participate every year.
Race Distances: Short, beginner friendly race distances. 9 & under complete a 40 yard pool swim, 1.5 mile bike, and .5 mile run. 10 & older complete an 80 yard pool swim, 3 mile bike, and 1 mile run.
Race Camp: Our coaching partner, Endorphin Fitness, hosts a camp in the eventings (5:30-7 pm) the week of the race (Aug 10-13) on the race course. Participants are taught essential skills to enjoy the sport safely and effectively. The camp is open to VHBG residents and the community.
