Event Description:

The Memphis Thunder Racing Kids Triathlon is an inspiring event that draws around 225 participants, ages 7-14, each year. One of Cory’s dreams was to offer a kids triathlon and we have successfully been promoting the sport of triathlon and keeping his spirit alive through the Thunder Kids Tri since 2005.

2018 marks the 14th annual race that brings together youth, families, and the community in an amazing spectacle of the sport of triathlon. The smiles on the kids faces as they cross the finish line are priceless! Part of the proceeds are given back to the community through the promotion of cycling safety with the purchase of “Share the Road” and “Give 3 Feet” signs.


Two distances will be offered by age group:

Junior Division:     Ages 7-10           100 yard swim, 5km bike, 1km run

Senior Division:    Ages 11-14         200 yard swim, 10km bike, 2km run


(Kids may complete the entire event as an individual or pair up with 2 others as a relay team)

Your whole family is invited to join in the Post Race Party!
