The Owensboro Parent Magazine Kids Triathlon is returning this year — with a twist. This year’s event is set for July 31 and will be an all-outdoor, bike-run event for children ages 4-14.

The format was altered in an effort to comply with all existing COVID-19 safety protocols.

Registration is now open at OwensboroParent.com.

The event will begin and end at the Owensboro Health Healthpark, and all roads will be closed to through-traffic, with the help of Owensboro Police Department.

There will be a live DJ and post-race refreshments.

Children are split into appropriate age groups, and will complete the following distances at the below start times:

  • Age 4-6: Bike .5 miles, Run .2 miles; 7:30 a.m.
  • Age 7-8: Bike 2.43 miles, Run .53 miles; 8 a.m.
  • Age 9-10: Bike 2.43 miles, Run 1.02 mile; 8:45 a.m.
  • Age 11-14: Bike 3.66 miles, Run 1.02 mile; 9:30 a.m.

Children of all abilities are welcome to participate, and families are encouraged to spectate and cheer. 

“We are so excited to bring the event back this year,” said Ashley Gleason, race director. “Owensboro Parent Magazine believes in getting families together, outdoors, and active. We love bringing our community together, and this event encompasses all of that in a really fun atmosphere.”

The event is sponsored by Independence Bank, with Owensboro Health as the special health partner.
