About The Event

A Healthy Life Experience

Get ready for your child to have a great day in the 1st annual, Optimist Sponsored, Ottawa Iron Kid Triathlon for triathletes ages 3 to 17!  We will have 5 different distances, depending on your child's age, in a safe and organized event that will match your child's experience and ability to a course that will ensure everyone safely crosses the finish line and has a great time.

Get Out and "Tri"

If we always do what we have always done, we will always get what we have always got.  Let’s encourage our youth to get out and try something new.  They are always moving around anyway, why not focus that energy in a positive way?

Have Fun

All participants  receive a medal for completing the race. Trophies are awarded to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places in each age group. Entry fee includes race T-shirt and pre/post-race goodies.
