Activities: Triathlon, Duathlon

The Silicon Valley Kids Triathlon (“SVKT”) is one of the country’s largest triathlons specifically for kids aged 15 and under. 

A triathlon consists of a combination of three sports: swimming, cycling, and running. A duathlon only has two sports so the kids run-bike-run (no swimming).

The kids start the race at the De Anza College pool in "waves" of 20 to 25 kids. Triathlon kids swim an age-appropriate distance while Duathlon kids skip the swim. From the pool, they run to the transition area to change for cycling. Then they head out to the bike course on roads closed to traffic and completely 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 finish the race on the track by crossing through the finishing chute right into the event expo to celebrate their great accomplishment! 

Event distances are based on the age of the athlete:
6 & under: 25-yard swim; 1-mile bike; 600-yard run
7-8 years: 50-yard swim; 2-mile bike; 1,000-yard run
9-10 years: 100-yard swim; 4-mile bike; 1,000-yard run
11-12 years: 150-yard swim; 6-mile bike; 1,800-yard run
13-15 years: 200-yard swim; 6-mile bike; 2,600-yard run

NOTE: Event age group placement is based on age on race day - August 14th. USAT rankings are based on age as of December 31.

Awards will be 3 deep for each age and gender. i.e.,  1st through 3rd for 10 year old boys, 1st through 3rd for 10 year old girls.

Duathlon
New this year is a duathlon option. A duathlon is a run-bike-run. Kids will run from the pool area to transition, and complete the same bike and run courses and distances as those doing the full triathlon.

Awards will be 3 deep for each age group and gender. i.e.,  1st through 3rd for 9-10 year old boyds, 1st through 3rd for 9-10 year old girls.
