Overview

Why should adults have all the fun? We present the fourth edition of Tri Kids Goa on 8th December 2019 with a fun new addition, the children's aquathlon!

The event is exclusively for children between the ages of 6-15 years. The swim will be at a government swimming pool, cycle on a safe road, closed to all vehicular traffic and run on a sport's track. The Pioneering Ventures Tri-Kids Goa will feature 3 age categories with gender segregation.

TRIATHLON (Greek origin, from τρεῖς or treis (three) and ἆθλος or athlos (competition): A multisport race with three continuous and sequential endurance races i.e., swimmingcycling and running over various distances. A transition area is set up where the athletes change gear for different segments of the race. This is where the switches from swimming to cycling and cycling to running occur. These areas are used to store bicycles, performance apparel, and any other accessories needed for the next stage of the race. The transition from swim to bike is referred to as T1 and that between the bike and run is referred to as T2. The athlete’s overall time for the race includes time spent in T1 and T2.

AQUATHLON : A continuous, two-stage race involving swimming followed by running. Aquathlons are most similar to triathlons, with the key difference being the lack of a cycle leg.
