Please refer to MAP for a map view of Kids Milehigh Tri 2017.
NOTE – This years Triathlon will be much longer and more challenging than last years for the older age groups and just as much fun for the young ones! We have set it up so it will be much more accommodating for the family cheer section as they will not have to run from Transition to Finish Line to watch their child (It will be a leisurely stroll with lots of cheering opportunities).
Go to Raceroster where you can enter and pay. Once we get all the good info and waivers are acknowledged we will be updating website and contacting you 1-2 weeks prior to event start.
