2014 Iron Kids Triathlon Winners

Clarien Bank Limited congratulates winners of the 26th Annual Clarien Iron Kids Triathlon, held on Saturday, September 20.

The Iron Kids Triathlon began in 1988 as a Gibbons Company event and was held at Shelly Bay Beach. Now hosted by Clarien at Clearwater, the event consists of a true swim, bike and run competition for junior triathletes, ages 7 – 15. The event includes two competitive categories: 1) Ages 7 – 10, which consists of a 100 meter swim, 2.5 mile bike and 0.5 mile run; and 2) Ages 11 – 15, which consists of a 200 meter swim, 5 mile bike and 1 mile run. In addition, kids ages 3 – 6 also participate in a non-competitive, abbreviated version of the course for fun, known as the Tiny Tots division, which consists of a 10 meter run, 250 meter bike and 50 meter run.

Every Iron Kids participant receives a finisher’s medal, with top awards going to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners in the Triathlon age group categories. Clarien congratulates the following 2014 overall Iron Kids triathlon winners who received funds that will be placed in an Iron Kids Account:
