Calling all Muscatine kids! It’s time to show what you got!

The Muscatine YMCA’s 11th Annual Kids Triathlon is happening this Saturday June 2 from 1-4 p.m. at the Muscatine YMCA soccer fields (1823 Logan St. Muscatine).

Open to youth up to 12 years old, this triathlon is like none other! The concept of swim, bike and run have been modified to ‘swimming’ through a 14-ft water slide and a 75-ft slip-n-side, biking on Big Wheels and tricycles and running through water hazards, hopping into mud puddles, and jumping over hay bales.

After all participants finish the heat beginning at 1 p.m. kids and families alike are invited to stay and hang out while enjoying slides, mud and bikes!

The fee for this awesome event is only $12 per child. Register today at the Muscatine YMCA.
