They’ve worked on the course as Olympics triathletes, at Goodwill Games and World Championships, and very soon, Greg and Laura Bennett — two of the world’s greatest endurance athletes — will be handing out medals to local kids.
One could be yours.
Our pick for one great way to fill a summer day: The YMCA of Boulder Valley’s annual Strong Kids Triathlon for kids ages 2 to 15. It will be held at the Lafayette Center pool and turf field to introduce kids to the sport of triathalon on July 27 at 9 am.
Participants will race in groups organized by age, which will include a lap or laps in the pool, on a tricycle or bike, and around the Y’s turf field. The smaller participants get passed along in the pool by lifeguards before jumping on their tricycle to complete the race.
It’s $20 for YMCA of Boulder Valley members and $30 for non-members. And everyone leaves with bragging rights. Registration is capped at 300, so on your mark, get set, go!
Not funny? Yah, you’re probably right.
