Building off the overwhelming success of last year's success, the 2016 Body Quest Paradise Triathlon is thrilled to offer once again the Body Quest Kids Duathlon on Saturday August 27 for children ages 5-14.
Children will run, cycle (on a dirt road) and then run again in this exciting event, finishing under the same finish line as the adult triathlon.
This duathlon is designed to offer kids and young adults the opportunity to experience and succeed at the sport in a positive environment.
Most kids are fit enough to finish this event confidently and successfully and have fun at the same time.
Registration is available HERE!
