About Us & The Race

The Silicon Valley Kids Triathlon (“SVKT”) is one of the country’s largest triathlons specifically for kids age 2-15. A triathlon is a race that combines three sports: swimming, cycling, and running. The kids start the race swimming at the De Anza College pool in “waves” (triathlon speak for groups) of 25 to 50 kids. From the swim, they run to the transition area to put on their helmets, shoes, and anything else they need. Then they 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 out to run around the De Anza Track. They then finish the race by crossing through the finishing chute!
