Our 6th annual Kid’s TRY-athlon was a huge success! 325 try-athletes came out swim, bike and run in honor of Aine. Thank you to all of the kids that gathered pledges for racing – together you raised more than $8,000 to support grieving children. Thanks to all of our volunteers, sponsors, spectators and supporters for helping to create such a great event for our kids!

Congratulations to all of our try-athletes for participating in this great event. Race results can be found here.

What Is The Kid’s Try-athlon?

Aine loved to be outside doing things. In the winter time she was crazy for sledding and in summer she turned into a fish (when she wasn’t riding her bike or running around with her friends). The Kid’s Try-athlon encompasses the 3 things Aine loved to do all summer: swim, bike and run! Our kid’s TRY-athlon is a race for all kids ages 4 to 15, no matter their athletic ability. It is an opportunity for kids to experience a race without the pressures of worrying if they can make the distances or not – we’ve designed it so that everyone is triumphant!

  • Ages 4 -10 swim 25 yards (no flotation devices allowed), bike 1 mile and run ½ mile
  • Ages 11 -15 swim 50 yards (no flotation devices allowed), bike 2 miles and run 1 mile

We think of this event as a tribute to Aine, as a fundraiser AND as an opportunity to get kids moving. We like to believe that the race is helping kids help themselves, while helping other kids. It’s a win-win!!
