Course Information:    
Swim
The swim will be held in the outdoor pool at the Bauman Aquatic Center.  The short course swimmers will start at the island in the middle of the pool and swim in towards the shallow water.  They will only be in water over their head for approximately eight feet.  The modified medium, medium and long distance course athletes will complete their swim in the lap lane portion of the pool, and will exit the pool on the end closest to the parking lot (transition area).  We will use lane lines to help keep kids going in one direction safely and smoothly, and athletes will cross under the lane lines as they “snake” across the pool. 
Bike

The bike course will take place on neighborhood streets surrounding the Bauman Aquatic Center.  Participants will do one or two loops depending on age, with our youngest athletes completing one loop of a shorter course.  All roads on the bike course will be closed to traffic, meaning no cars will be allowed to leave their driveways during the event.  We will also have police-controlled intersections and 30 course volunteers helping children and neighborhood citizens stay safe during the event.  Training wheels are allowed for this race.

Run
The run course will be take place on the Middleton High School campus for our short and medium course athletes, and on the Pheasant Branch trail for our long course athletes.  The courses are shown below.

Relay:
The Tri 4 Schools Kids Triathlon has both a two and three person relay team division.  What this means, is that you can team up with one or two friends to complete the triathlon.  Relay teams will complete the same distance as individual competitors, but will choose the leg (or legs) of the race where they are strongest.

For example, one person could do the swim, another could do the bike, and a third could do the run.  With a two person team, one person could do the swim, and the other could do the biking and running (or any other combination of the three legs).  The athlete who will be running will wear an electronic disposable timing chip, as well as the race number bib.  In a three person team, only one team member should complete each event (for example, all team members do not need to bike or run).  This is a great option if your child is not a strong swimmer – just find a friend that likes to swim and you are ready to go!  In a two person relay team, one athlete will do two legs of the event.

A meeting will be held the morning of the race to help relay teams understand where they need to be in the transition area.

Awards:   
All participants will receive finisher medals.  The top three athletes in each age category and gender will receive a trophy, as well as the top three finishers (boys and girls) who are competing in a distance longer than the recommended distance for their age – 10 and under (Long Course), and 6 and under (Medium and Modified Medium Course).

For our relay participants, the top team in each race distance will receive awards: short, middle, and long distance.

Award ceremonies will take place at approximately 9:45 for our long distance race, 10:30 for our middle distance race, and 11:15 for our short distance race.

Finally, we have two special awards: one which will be awarded to the school with the most participants for our Middleton event; and our Fittest School Award, which will be presented at the school with the most participants over the course of our race season!
