Simpkins Family Swim Center - SuperKid Triathlon

September 20, 2020

SuperKid is all about building strong bodies and healthy kids. This means getting them off the couch, away from the TV and Video Games, and outside for some healthy physical activity. It doesn't matter if your child is already an athlete or is just starting to engage in sports and outdoor activity. This is a great event for the whole family and gives your children the opportunity to be active and healthy. With a swim, bike and run course, real transition area, body markings and awards for all participants, you can help your child gain the self esteem that comes from doing their personal best. SuperKid is co-sponsored by Santa Cruz County Parks.

Kids will swim in the Simpkins pool, bike and through the adjacent park on dirt roads and trails. Each child must wear an ANSI approved helmet on the bike. THE BIKE COURSE IS SUITABLE FOR FAT TIRE, MOUNTAIN BIKES, AND CYCLECROSS BIKES. No road bikes or skinny tires! Kids 6 and under may have assistance or floatation devices to get across the pool! We always have safety swimmers in the pool, but kickboards, noodles, and arm floaties are just fine too.

All kids who participate will receive a finisher's medal a t-shirt, swim cap, water bottle and other special sponsor gifts.
