As you might imagine, this breaks our hearts. At the same time, we completely understand our partners at MIT, the City of Cambridge and the New England Patriots all have higher priorities. They love our event and have been incredible supporters since we held our first kids triathlon in 2011. At the same time, they have to make decisions that are right for their organizations and for the overall health of the community.
We are in 100% agreement with this approach and extend their focus to the safety and well-being of our participants, fans and volunteers. If we work together and stay focused, we will lessen the impact of COVID-19 across New England and be able to return to the lifestyle we love much sooner.
In fact, we have already begun planning for July 2021!
Thanks again for your incredible support of the New England Kids Triathlon. It is with a heavy heart we share this information. At the same time, we know there are many others - starting with our first responders - who are doing so much more to keep us healthy and safe.
Also, we know we are in this together, and we hope you will be able to fill your summer with swimming, biking and running as we all look ahead to a better 2021. Take care and be safe.
More than 80% of the kids participating in our events are completing their first triathlon. This leaves parents with lots of questions. Accordingly, we have put together a list of FAQ’s (with answers). Check these out first. If you do not find what you are looking for, click the other button below to connect with our Event Director.

Every organization has its story. Ours is a little different. Back in 2008, three moms who all loved the sport of triathlon – especially the impact it has on kids – decided to start a small, community-based kids triathlon in Jacksonville, FL. They wanted their kids to participate, and they hoped a few others would register. On that “special” morning in May 2009, nearly 500 kids showed up. More importantly, 100% of them finished the race and became triathletes.
As they say, the rest is history.
Linda, Mandy and Susan are still actively involved in the sport of triathlon, and each of them has played a critical role in our growth. Kids Triathlon, Inc. now organizes the largest kids triathlon series in the world. What started as their dream has since helped transform the dreams of more than 22,000 kids as they each gained the healthy habits and self-confidence that result from being a triathlete.
