TriYouthalon, in partnership with Philadelphia Parks and Recreation, have the pleasure of kicking-off the 4rd Annual Hunting Park Family Fun & Fitness Day!

Remember to bring all the family to race - your Parents, Grandparents, Aunts/Uncles, cousins... and family friends, too. This is a great day to enjoy the beauty of Hunting Park and the excitement of racing together! Plan to stay after for all the festivities planned by Hunting Park United.

This race is a challenge for kids of all abilities, adults entering the triathlon sport, families racing together or kids/adults having fun racing on their own.

Do use this race as an excuse to train with someone special!

Some of our racers, the Duathletes, will skip the swim and begin their race with a run. 7 - 11 year-olds will begin with a 1/4 mile run and all others will run 1/2 mile. Both Triathletes and Duathletes, after they have finished the bike portion, complete a run of 1/2 mile (7 - 11) and 1 mile (12 - adult). The runs are on the paved paths.
