The Y‘s mission is to promote youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. The Frederick Kid’s Triathlon was formed to provide a fun, safe and healthy event for children ages 6 to 15 in our community and surrounding communities in Maryland and nearby states. Our cause is to end childhood obesity and promote a healthy lifestyle for all children. We welcome all exercise/sport types from the very beginner to the competitive youth athlete.
The race takes place at Middletown High School in Middletown, Maryland. Located in Frederick County this event is just 50 miles west of Baltimore, 50 miles north of Washington DC, and 35 miles south of Gettysburg, PA. The course uses the school property, adjacent residential neighborhood and county park. No major roads are utilized. Traffic Control Personnel and Volunteers will be available at any intersection for the bike route segment.
New this year! OUR NEW START TIME – 4:00pm. To avoid confusion with other events at the park, we have changed our time to an afternoon race. We continue to offer a “New participant” Category for any age 6-15. This category is for those that have never competed or participated in a Triathlon event. We would like to introduce those new to the sport an opportunity to try their first race at a discount.
