The Tar Heel Youth Triathlon kicks off in Chapel Hill this weekend, a three-race series created by Kids Tri NC and Triangle Multisport.

Almost 100 kids participated in a kids’ triathlon event last October in Chapel Hill, prompting the organizations to expand to three events this year: Sunday (May 18) in Chapel Hill, July 27 in Hillsborough and Sept. 28 in Cary.

All three races have age-specific distances, for kids ages 6-10 and 11-15. All participants receive a finisher’s medal and prizes are awarded to the top three overall boys and girls in each age group.
