The 2018 Tampa Bay Kids Triathlon Returns to Adventure Island!
Calling everyone 6-14 years old who loves to swim, bike and run! Adventure Island in conjunction with The Tampa Bay Sports Commission (TBSC) and the Event Development Institute will host the sixth annual Tampa Bay Kids Triathlon (TBKT) on Saturday, April 14th!
TBKT is presented by Florida Blue and offers participants the opportunity to compete in and around Busch Gardens’ premier water park, Adventure Island.
Participants ages 6-10 will compete in the junior varsity division and ages 11-14 will compete in the varsity division. All contestants will receive an awesome ‘Swag Bag’ that includes an Under Armour T-shirt. But, the first 400 to register will receive a complementary race-day ‘Stay and Play’ ticket to Adventure Island. Make sure you register early so you can get the chance to ride the park’s newest attraction, Vanish Point, a 70-foot drop slide!
All competitors will be awarded a finisher’s medal upon completion of the race. The top three finishers in each category will receive a trophy and an additional Adventure Island ‘Stay and Play’ ticket.
At the event, all on-site participants will have the opportunity to enter to win a youth ‘Trek’ brand road bike, courtesy of David’s World Cycle the official bike technicians for the Tampa Bay Kids Triathlon.
