About Us & The Race

The Silicon Valley Kids Triathlon (“SVKT”) is one of the country’s largest triathlons specifically for kids age 4-15. A triathlon is a race that consists of a combination of three sports: swimming, cycling, and running. The kids start the race with swimming at the De Anza College pool in waves (triathlon speak for groups) of 25 to 50 other kids. From the swim, they run to the transition area to put on their helmets, shoes, and anything else they need. They then mount their bikes and head out to the bike course on the roads inside the De Anza College campus. When the kids are done with the bike, they head back to transition to put their bike away, and head to run on the De Anza Track. They finish the race on the track by crossing through the finishing chute!
