The 6th annual Tri-ing for Children's triathlon will be held at Ottawa Lake State Park in the beautiful Southern Kettle Morraine Forest. A swim in Ottawa lake is followed by a bike course through the gently sloping hills of the forest. A portion of your registration fee and all fundraising proceeds benefit Tri-ing for Children's, Inc., a non-profit charity for children's hospitals.
Each athlete will recieve a technical t-shirt, a safe course with an experience water safety team on the swim marked by large highly-visible buoys. Pre-race water and post-race refreshments will be served.
The course will be accurately measured and well-marked, and the race will be chip-timed by SMA timing. Transition will be secure and professional bike SAG will be provided by Trek Bicycles in transition and out on the course.
