A new addition to the Age Group National Championship weekend is a USA Triathlon Kids Fun Run the night before the event, Friday, August 9 sponsored by the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. This is a non-competitive fun run where everyone goes away a winner. The quarter mile and half mile fun runs will start at the Milwaukee Art Museum and finish with all participants running down the Age Group National Championship finish line chute. The event is FREE and open to all children ages 4-14 years old. Athletes between the ages of 4-8 will race the quarter mile distance and athletes between the ages of 9-14 will race the half mile distance. This event will be capped at 200 participants. Participants must sign up online. There will be no day of registration sign up at the venue. Athletes will receive a finishers medal and a participant t-shirt. This is a great way to help kids to stay physically fit and active. Registration is now open! A parent or guardian must be present at the event to sign a waiver for the child to race.

We encourage all Kids Fun Run participants to come back Saturday and Sunday to see some of the best age group triathletes in the country. These athletes are competing for a chance to qualify for Team USA. The athletes that qualify will compete in Edmonton, Canada at the 2014 World Championships next fall.
