Who   What   When
You! That’s you plus your siblings and your classmates, cousins, neighbors and all of your parents. “RHYTS,” as we call it, is a kid-focused race of varying distances according to age. Each participant earns awards based on their finish in that race PLUS series points for an award after the final race at the end of Summer.  

The Rock Ďn Heartland Youth Triathlon Series is two races here in Highlands County designed to get our children doing what they love best -- swimming, biking and running -- with a focus on healthy bodies and minds. For more info, ďLikeĒ us on FB: http://goo.gl/BoZsf.

 

 

Race 1 is May 13(Motherís Day);
Race 2 is Aug. 12, 2012

Where   Why   How

All RHYTS events are hosted by the Highlands County Family YMCA at 100 YMCA Lane, Sebring, FL. The swim will be held in the newly constructed 25 yard pool, with the bike course running through the surrounding community and the run course contained with the Max Long Recreation Complex.

 

Because we believe that children healthy in body will have a better chance at being healthy in mind. Because we believe in the family unit, and want to foster family strengthening lifestyles, such as triathlon. Because we believe that, unlike other organized sports, triathlon (and its individual component sports) foster healthy lifestyles (from food choices to increased physical activity). Also, triathletes, unlike other sports, can be enjoyed individually or together with friends, family or a team. And, finally, because itís FUN!

 

 

So, I know how to swim, ride a bike and run but how do I train for a triathlon? How does the race work? How can I find out more information? Glad you asked! TriPower is a triathlon-specific training team (for youth); itís a component of Highlands Pedalers. Our first meeting/training session is 3 p.m. Feb. 11 at YMCA. It should last about an hour-and-ahalf and your parents are required to attend the full session (so tell them to bring their bikes too!).
