Greenwich Emergency Medical Service (GEMS) is excited to host the third annual GEMS Kids Triathlon at Greenwich High School on Sunday, June 11th, 2023. The Triathlon will again be a fun community event for local youth, ages 6-14, promoting a healthy and active lifestyle, building self-confidence and fostering important life skills.
The GEMS Kids Tri will include prizes, refreshments and entertainment for participants and their families. It is a USA Triathlon sanctioned event consisting of three races: swimming, cycling, and running – in that order. The swim will take place in the Greenwich High School (GHS) pool, the bike ride will be in both the GHS parking lots and around the school and running will be on GHS athletic fields. The race begins promptly at 7:45am, with participants required to be onsite by 6:45am.
To participate, children must be 6 years old by 12/31/2023 and can be no older than 14 years old by 12/31/2023, as per USAT sanctioning. This means that five years olds can participate if they are turning six years old in 2023 and that the age cut-off would not include teens that are turning 15 at some point in 2023. Registration closes on June 9th and day of registration is not available.
