The Bellingham Youth Triathlon has been initiating kids to the sport
of triathlon since 1999. We work hard to create an environment of
accomplishment for everyone involved. Each participant is awarded a medal as
they cross the finish line, we encourage everyone to stay for the prize
drawing at the finish where pretty much everyone wins something fun.

The swim is in the 25 yard, Arne Hanna Aquatic Center Pool. Participants
will start in waves of up to 8 every 10 seconds and circle swim until they
have finished. Participants must complete the swim unaided.
There are some hills on the open roads. We work hard to make the course
safe for participants and traffic alike. The course is well marked and
volunteers are stationed at every corner with traffic signs and orange
The run is 1 to 4 laps, depending on the division, in a course set up in
the fields next to the pool.
The transition area is directly outside the front doors of the pool. We
ask participants to walk into and out of the transition area. We ask parents
to be mindful of other parents kids and to give them a respectful berth.
Results will follow the completion of the last race (approximately 11:15
a.m.). All participants are urged to attend; we get lots of cool stuff.
Prizes were donated by local companies
Participants must finish before the next race starts.
