Rockford Area Kids Triathlon

The 13th Annual Rockford Area Kids Triathlon is set to be held on Saturday July 8, 2017 at the Rockford High School.  Races will start at 9:00am and participants should arrive an hour before race time.

This is a swim/bike/run event for children age 2-17 sponsored by the Rockford Public Safety, Kent County Sheriff’s Department, and the Michigan State Police.
