Atlanta Kids Triathlon

Unfortunately, our 9th annual Atlanta Kids Triathlon event will have to wait until 2021. Get the latest on our COVID-19 response. Learn more

As you might imagine, this breaks our hearts. At the same time, we completely understand our partners at Gwinnett County and the YMCA of Metro Atlanta 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 Atlanta and be able to return to the lifestyle we love much sooner.

In fact, we have already begun planning for August 2021!

Thanks again for your incredible support of the Atlanta 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 important work to keep us healthy and safe.

Also, we know we are in this together. 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.

7-Week Training Programs

These 7-week, hands-on programs provide an amazing opportunity for kids to get ready to complete their first triathlon. Through a unique partnership with YMCA’s across Atlanta, kids across the region are able to get expert instruction and gain the confidence and abilities necessary to become triathletes. Each Program consists of seven 1-hour sessions that focus on each of the 4 disciplines of the sport of triathlon.

Best of all, these Programs are completely free and are open to both members and non-members of the Y. Please understand a few things before registering for one of these programs:

These sessions will start in early June and will fill very quickly. If you are interested, please review the listing below and contact the most convenient Y location as soon as possible.

Hands-On Clinics

In addition to the 7-week, hands-on programs, we are proud to offer multiple Hands-On Clinics at locations across Metro Atlanta. Each Clinic lasts for a total of 3 hours and will give every participant the knowledge they need to complete a triathlon. These clinics are not as intensive as the 7-Week Programs, but they are ideal for young athletes who are physically ready to complete the triathlon but need some practice and knowledge.

At the start of each Clinic, the participants will be divided into 4 groups (usually by age). After a brief introduction, the 4 groups will each rotate across 4 different stations. Each rotation lasts for 30 minutes and gives every participant the opportunity to swim, bike, run and practice their transitions. Each Clinic ends with a Question & Answer session that helps make sure everyone is ready for race weekend. Parents are welcome to attend, but we ask that you allow the coaches to do all the coaching.

Please understand a few things before registering for one of these Clinics:
