All children encouraged to Tri the Rock May 20 | Community Spirit
All you have to do is tri! The Town of Castle Rock’s child-friendly triathlon is back for the seventh time this year.
Children ages 5-14 of all ability levels 14 are encouraged to Tri the Rock May 20 at Butterfield Crossing Park and Pool, 3952 W. Butterfield Crossing Drive. The races start at 8 a.m., but the bike racks open at 6:30 a.m. Race distances are:
• 5 and 6 years old: 25-meter swim (one pool length), 1-kilometer bike ride (one lap around Butterfield Park) and a 500-meter run
• 7-10 years old: 50-meter swim (two pool lengths), 4-kilometer bike ride and a 1-kilometer run
• 11-14 years old: 100-meter swim (four pool lengths), 8-kilometer bike ride and a 2-kilometer run
Registration is $35 per child until May 14. The fee is $40 if you register between May 14 and May 18, when registration closes. Due to the increase in costs for youth membership, Tri the Rock is no longer affiliated with USA Triathlon, so a USAT membership is not required to participate in Tri the Rock. Register at www.tritherock.com, or by calling the Castle Rock Recreation Center, 303-660-1036.
Beyond being good for the body, Tri the Rock will also benefit local schools – $10 of each registration fee will go to the participant’s school physical education program. The program has raised more than $20,000 for area school PE programs during its six-year history.
The school with the most participants will receive a party at the Recreation Center’s Leisure Pool. The school will also get to display the Tri the Rock traveling trophy until the next Tri the Rock event.
After the event, enjoy awards, food and entertainment at the park.
