Reston Kids Triathlon Needs Your Help

Reston Kids Tri 2014/Credit: RAThe fifth annual Reston Kids Triathlon is Sunday, and its organizers could use some volunteer help.

The event, sponsored by Reston Association and the YMCA Fairfax County Reston runs from 8 to 11 a.m. The swim portion is at Ridge Heights Pool. The bike race runs down Ridge Heights Road and Soapstone Drive. The run is on paths around South Lakes High School.

The event is intended to be a fun opportunity for youngsters to stay active through the summer and learn about the fast-growing sport of triathlon. All net proceeds from this event will be used for The Y and RA youth scholarship programs.

Volunteers receive a T-shirt and breakfast.

Some of the volunteer areas: Race set-up; food and water; course marshals; transition area; swim officials; and more. See the more details and sign up on the Reston Kids Tri website.
