Wonderkids Triathalon

Clarksville Parks & Recreation recently hosted its 6th Annual Wonderkids Triathlon at New Providence swimming pool.

“This event is very popular,” Parks & Rec's Tina Boysha said. “We max out at 150 participants, and again this year,we hit that number about three weeks prior to the registration deadline.

“This triathlon is a swim, bike, and run event for kids from three to twelve years old. They compete in one of three age groups 3 – 5, 6 – 8, or 9 – 12. Our numbers are limited because of space, but we hope to add a category for kids 13-15 next year. “We are still trying to work out the logistics on that, but we have a lot of people asking about that age group.”

Academy Sports is a major sponsor of the event, Once again, they provided bicycles that were given away to some of the lucky triathletes after the competition. Sponsors and organizers are already working to make next year's event bigger and better.
