The JUST TRYAN IT kids triathlon is a timed event however the atmosphere is non-competitive. It is a perfect introductory event for the kids interested in a healthy lifestyle. We allow kick boards or other floatation devices in the pool. Of course, we encourage competitive athletes as well. We separate the racers into heats for safety and to ensure that all racers feel good about their participation.

  • Ages 6 and 14 years old, as defined by age on race day, can participate.
  • Distances are approximate.
  • Registration fee for the months of May - August: $60 plus processing fee
  • Registration fee for the month of September: $70 plus processing fee

Each racer is required to fundraise a minimum of $50 to receive their race packet and bib number

Proceeds from our Bethesda event will support families in treatment for pediatric cancer in the greater Washington, DC and Northern Virginia area. JUST TRYAN IT also supports families in the Triangle area of North Carolina.

A team can be created to include a school group, a sports team, or any other sort of group. Teams can also be used to unify the children of one family. If you are raising funds as part of a team, please note our incentive policy: the distribution of fundraising incentives is determined by dollars raised on an individual’s fundraising page NOT by total dollars raised on a team fundraising page. Donations made directly to a team page, and not to a specific racer, will NOT be considered when determining incentives earned. Each racer is still required to fundraise a minimum of $50 regardless of their team fundraising.

The safety of our athletes, volunteers, and spectators is our primary concern. In the event of inclement weather, the race will continue under the following circumstances:

  • Lightning- the event will be postponed by 30 minutes. All racers and spectators will move to the field house for shelter.  If the lightning continues, the race will be cancelled.
  • Rain- the event will NOT be canceled due to rain alone. If it is determined that the bike portion of the race would be unsafe due to wet roads, then the race will be changed to a swim-run duathlon. Athletes will be informed of such a change via announcements on race day.
  • Tornado warning- The race will be canceled in the event of a tornado warning.

We are unable to process refunds in the event of cancellation due to weather or other circumstances outside of our control.
