The Silicon Valley Kids Triathlon (“SVKT”) is one of the country’s largest triathlons specifically for kids aged FOUR through SEVENTEEN. 

There are two triathlon events to choose from. The traditional Kids Tri is for kids aged 4 to 15. The Super-Sprint is for kids 12 to 17. Kids 12 - 15 can choose the shorter distances of the traditional event or the longer distances of the Super-Sprint. 

A duathlon is a run-bike-run. Kids will run from the start area to transition, then complete the same bike and run courses with the same distances as those doing the full triathlon.

6 & Under
Parents (or other adult) are allowed to accompany their child aged 6 & under throughout the entire race including accompanying them at (not in) the pool and running beside them on the bike and run. Because this age is getting help from their parent and because of their developmental stage, they will not be timed nor ranked.

Parents of children aged 7 to 10 may come into transition to help setup and tear down their kid's spot. Children aged 11 and up are developmentally ready to race on their own!

Distance By Age

Event distances are based on the age of the athlete as of Dec 31, 2024:

Bay Area Kids Triathlon Series

Mission: To introduce the sport of triathlon to young people in our community in a safe and fun environment. Distances are short and intended to expose our youngest triathletes to the basic elements of triathlon. We also hope to counteract the negative effects of too much television and electronic activity, and encourage young boys and girls, ages 4 up to 17, to lead a healthy lifestyle and to enjoy the benefits of outdoor activities.

USAT Membership

A USAT membership is required for this race.  USAT is the governing body for Triathlons in the United States.  They establish the rules we follow and provide the insurance for our event.

What is "Triathlon Age"?

In order keep participant ages consistent at multiple races through out the year, USAT considers your age to be your age on December 31st of the current year. For example, a person who will be turning 8 years old anytime during the year is considered 8 years old for the entire year (even if their birthday has not passed yet.

Inclusion and Accommodations

If an athlete has other special needs, contact us at least one (1) month before the race and we will work together to come up with a race plan that takes their needs into account.
