    Yes the Towne Lake Kids Triathlon is an open water swim. The swim is a point to point swim across the cove. There is a floating buoy rope from start to finish and line that rope with lifeguards and kayakers (see photos to the right). Every precaution is taken to keep your children as safe as possible. They are able to participate in a practice swim 30 minutes prior to the swim start to help calm any fears they may have about the open water. Those that do not feel comfortable without the assistance of a parent or swim aid such as floaties, fins or a life jacket, will be permited to use such devices but cannot be timed and must start after the last competitive swimmer has exited the water.

    The bike course is a very easy, flat, fast out and back loop on closed roads. Long course is 2-loops and short course is 1-loop. There will be a timing mat to make sure all kids do their loops. Those not completing the correct amount of loops will unfortunately be disqualified.

    The run course(s) are simple, flat, fast closed course(s) that are a mixture of pavement, sidewalks and crushed gravel trails. All turns are well marked. Short course turns around early and long course continues on before they make their u-turn and head back towards the finish. All finishers will receive finisher's medals and a great post race with food, drink and awards.
