Children ages 5-15 can train for triathlon with Team Vanderbilt

Sign your child up for the 2012 Nashville Kids Triathlon. The race is geared for the first-time triathlete, with manageable distances for 5- to 10-year-olds and 11- to 15-year-olds.

In the Junior Division (ages 5-10 – turning 6 by Dec. 31, 2012), participants swim 100 meters, bike three miles and run a half-mile.

In the Senior Division (ages 11-15), participants swim 200 meters, bike six miles and run one mile.

Take advantage of the partnership with 12 area YMCAs that will host a free training program for all participants. Your child can join “Team Vanderbilt” to train, race alongside their friends and receive a free T-shirt.

Contact Karen Kaiser for more information, how to register or how to volunteer for the event. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.
