Time for the first of this year's Greensboro Youth Triathlon Series! This will be Berkley's third summer competing it the series. He will be 6 for the first 2 of the 3 races, but will turn 7 right before the final race. So, per triathlon rules, he will race in the 7-8 category even though he won't even be 7 yet! We'll see how that goes. We expect this to be a fun year of growth as he learns to transition without a parent to help him...that's probably the biggest difference in moving up age groups!
With his pal Cameron before the first race...
7-8 year olds swim a 50 instead of a 25, but the bike & run amounts are the same as the 6 and unders.
The transition time was slow, but he figured it out!
Incredible! Berkley had so much fun and had a strong third place finish! We were super-proud!
There happened to be several kids from his school who participated and placed in this race. It was fun to see them all together!
