Welcome to the 2022 West Point Youth Triathlon! This year's race is NOT a TOUGHKids event or a USAT Sanctioned race. The race is just-for-fun race with no podium awards to introduce kids to the sport of triathlon. All athletes will receive a t-shirt and a finisher's medal. The race will be held on the 13th of August for ages 4-14. There are two different races - one for kids aged 4-6 and one for kids aged 7-14. The race will fill up quickly!
Parents, please consider volunteering to support the youth race or joining us for the 32nd Annual West Point Sprint Triathlon on Sunday August 14, 2022 at Camp Buckner West Point, NY. Register at: 32nd Annual West Point Triathlon - Cornwall, NY 2022 | ACTIVE
The athlete's guide with information on this event as well as the Sunday sprint triathlon will be published at a later date.
