Briar Chapel will be hosting the second race in the Tar Heel Youth Triathlon series this year on August 2, 2015.
The swim will take place in Briar Chapel's 25-yard saltwater pool using a time-trial start format.
After completing the swim, kids run to the transition area, which is located in the Briar Club parking lot and get their bikes to begin a one or two-loop out-and-back style bike course on Tobacco Farm Road and Briar Chapel Parkway.
After returning their bikes to the transition area, kids run either a 1K loop for short course or a 2K loop for long course on quiet streets near the Briar Club. They will finish near the Club.
All finishers receive a finisher medal. Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 male and female overall and in each age group (6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14, 15).
