Texas Tech’s Fit 4 Fun Kid’s Triathlon Open for Registration

Rec Sports prepares for fun summer events for children.


Registration is open for the 2014 Fit 4 Fun Kid’s Triathlon hosted by Texas Tech University’s Rec Sports. Beginning at 7:30 a.m. on July 12, kids will test their endurance at the Robert H. Ewalt Student Recreation Center, located on Main Street just east of Indiana Avenue.

This event begins with a swim at the leisure pool, transitioning into a bike ride and ends with a run around the recreation center. Age groups will have different distances to compete in.

Seven- to 10-year-olds will swim 100 yards, bike 2.4 miles and run one mile, and 11- to 14-year-olds will swim 200 yards, bike 3.2 miles, and run 1.5 miles. A free preparation workshop will be held on July 7 from 6 to 7 p.m. at the recreation center for participants.

The cost is $20 for the first child and $15 for each additional child of the same family. Packet pickup will be July 11 from 4 to 8 p.m. with last-chance registration available at the Fit/Well office inside the recreation center. All participants must pick up numbers and packets. There will be no race day packet pickup.

Participants can register online, mail the registration form or register through the Fit/Well office. For more information and to obtain the Fit 4 Fun registration form, go to the Rec Sports website or contact their office at (806) 742-3351.
