Registration for the first ever Swim for Smiles Youth Triathlon in the brand new Greensboro Aquatic Center - a fundraiser for the NC Children's Hospital is NOW OPEN and limited to the first 250 kids who register! Go here to register!
The May Swim for Smiles Youth Triathlon in Chapel Hill was the largest of its kind in the country - with over 800 participants. And, USAT along with the Brader-Araje Foundation, awarded the organization a grant specifically with the goal of growing the sport of youth triathlon. So, they've partnered with the brand-new Greensboro Aquatics Center (GAC) to bring the Triad's first-ever USA-Triathlon sanctioned race with the same course as Youth Nationals.
Open to kids from ages 5-17, the Swim for Smiles Youth Triathlon at GAC is a USA-Triathlon sanctioned event open for ALL levels of participants.
The Swim for Smiles Youth Triathlon @ GAC starts at 8am on September 10th at the Greensboro Aquatic Center's indoor pool and moves to a bike and run around the Coliseum complex.
This is considered an easy triathlon and is designed for all levels of youth participants.
Every finisher receives a medal and the top three finishers of each age group will receive prizes!
