The Iron Kids Triathlon began in 1988 as a Gibbons Company event held at Shelly Bay Beach in Hamilton Parish. It was later organized by Capital G Bank, now Clarien Bank, and is now held at Clearwater Beach in St. David’s.
Clarien Iron Kids is a community-driven event hosted by Clarien Bank allowing youth living in Bermuda to compete in a traditional swim, bike and run junior triathlon which consists of two parts:
1. The Junior Triathlon
Children ages 7-15 swim, bike and run to the finish line. This competition is open to all children, but oftentimes veteran youth triathletes enter.
Managed by the Bermuda Triathlon Association, the island’s youth get first-hand experience in a triathlon competition. Former Iron Kids participants Flora Duffy, and Tyler Butterfield continue to represent Bermuda as professional triathletes.
2. Tiny Tots Race
This is the last triathlon event for the day, open to children ages 3-6.
