Or­ga­niz­ers pleased with youth triathlon turnout

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

About 40 chil­dren be­tween the ages of five and 14 par­tic­i­pated in the first an­nual Kids of Steel (KOS) Tri Lob­ster Triathlon Sun­day in Summerside. Due to high winds and rough wa­ter the swim por­tion was can­celled and an ad­di­tional run was added, so par­tic­i­pants ran, biked and ran a sec­ond course. “We had a great turnout for the Tri Lob­ster KOS race,” said race di­rec­tor Kris Tay­lor. “Seems like kids are adopt­ing it as a new sum­mer sport. Af­ter all it is three ac­tiv­i­ties they re­ally en­joy and can do to­gether as a fam­ily, with friends and by them­selves.” The third KOS triathlon of the sea­son is be­ing held in Bru­denell on Sun­day, Aug. 23, along with the Three Rivers Triathlon.
