Now everyone can get in on the action with Elzie Odom Athletic Center's first Tiny Tots Triathlon! This unique event is recreational and encourages young kids to get out and be active. The triathlon takes place at 10 a.m. Saturday, June 4 at Elzie Odom Athletic Center located at 1601 NE Green Oaks Blvd.

The event is designed for age groups from 3 to 4 and 5 to 6.

"This event is going to be awesome! The 3-6 year age ranges have lots of pent up energy to burn and this will be a great way to burn it off while having fun and making a lasting memory with your child,"Sports Manager Danyale Webb said. "Running, Biking, and Sliding are some of my four year old daughter's favorite things to do. These are my favorite age groups to work with because you can see all the excitement and sense of accomplishments in their little faces when they finish."

Participants will bike a quarter mile, run 200 yards, and "get wet"at the end. Bring a bicycle or tricycle with a helmet, wear tennis shoes, and comfortable athletic clothing. Medals will be awarded to all participants who finish the triathlon! One parent helper is allowed.

Check-in time starts at 9 a.m. with the first race kicking off at 10 a.m. Groups start every five minutes on a first-come first-serve basis. Participants may complete the course up to two times.

Pre-registration is REQUIRED. $15 per child.
