Nearly one hundred kids swam, biked, and ran their way to the finish line Saturday in Bowling Green.
The Healthy Wright Coalition of Southern Kentucky hosted the 8th Annual Kids Try-Athlon and Fun Run.
The event encourages kids to live a healthy life style, try to achieve their best, and build confidence while having fun.
"A lot of these kids this is their first race, anything competitive, this is just such a great confidence booster for the kids. This is just such a great way to introduce sports and team atmosphere so we absolutely encourage parents to come out and encourage their children to do that," says Event Coordinator Sarah Hurley.
Saturdays triathlon for kids is ahead of Sundays Bowling Green Sprint Triathlon also at Russell Sims Aquatic Center.
