In conjunction with The Tampa Bay Sports Commission (TBSC) and the Event Development Institute, Adventure Island will host the sixth annual Tampa Bay Kids Triathlon (TBKT), presented by Florida Blue, on Saturday, April 14, 2018. The TBKT offers participants the opportunity to swim, bike and run in and around Busch Gardens’ premier water park, Adventure Island.
Boys and girls ages 6-10 (junior varsity division) and 11-14 (varsity division) are eligible to participate. The first 400 registrations will receive a complimentary, race-day ‘Stay and Play’ ticket to Adventure Island – including the park’s newest attraction, Vanish Point, a 70-foot tall drop slide.
Participants will receive a race-day ‘Swag Bag’, including an Under Armour T-shirt. All competitors will be awarded a finisher’s medal upon completion of the race and the top three finishers in each category will earn a trophy along with an additional Adventure Island ‘Stay and Play’ ticket.
Additionally, all on-site participants will have the chance to enter and win a youth ‘Trek’ brand road bike, courtesy of David’s World Cycle. David’s World Cycle will also serve as the official bike technicians for this USA Triathlon sanctioned event.
Registration, entry fees, course maps, athlete guide, parking directions and other critical information can be found on the event website, TampaBayKidsTriathlon.com.
