The date for this year’s 24th Annual Granite Kid Triathlon has been set for Saturday, July 18, 2015. The triathlon is traditionally held annually on the 3rd Saturday in July.
This race is truly a unique event that focuses on encouragement and achievement and also rewards those participants who put forth great determination and perseverance. Parents, friends and family cheer on the participants as our young racers discover what they are capable of. The day starts out as bodies are marked with the numbers, swim caps and bib numbers are distributed, bikes are placed in their racks, and the anxiety that precedes the start begins to build. The first wave of swimmers hits the water and the cheers and words of encouragement continue until every last finisher has crossed the line.
The triathlon will begin and finish at Brewster Beach which is located on Clark Road in Wolfeboro. The annual race regularly draws upwards of 100+ first young triathletes (many of them first-timers) from throughout New England. The race gets more popular each year, so register early to ensure your spot.
