    The Brambleton Community Association is bringing the sport of triathlon to the community on Saturday, September 1, 2012. The Association’s goals for this family friendly event is to ensure a safe, high quality experience for athletes and their families; to donate proceeds to a charitable youth organization; and to encourage a fit and healthy lifestyle for youth in and around Brambleton. Additionally, the hope is that the kids participating have fun and leave with a sense of individual success and accomplishment.

    The triathlon has openings for up to 150 participants, ranging from ages 5-14 years old. It will kick off at 8:00 a.m., with the first age group (5-8), and will include family friendly activities. Within each age-group, athletes participate in a swim, bike and run course. Each participant will be provided a goody-bag which will include an event t-shirt and miscellaneous donated sponsor items. Also, as each individual crosses the finish line, they will receive a finisher’s medal. Following the event, there will be an awards ceremony. Proceeds from this event will be donated to the Special Olympics of Loudoun.

    The Special Olympics of Loudoun is one of the most successful athletic programs in Northern Virginia. Special Olympics is a non-profit organization that provides training and competition in various Olympic-style sports. Training is free to the athletes. The average cost to train an athlete is $175 per season and is paid for by the local committee. The program has grown greatly over the past four years and relies on fundraising activities throughout the year to support programs such as golfing, basketball, tennis, volleyball, swimming, bowling, softball and more. Our hope is that the Kids Triathlon will raise enough money to help as many Special Olympics athletes as possible.

    The Brambleton Kids Triathlon also provides opportunities for various types of sponsorships and volunteer positions. Please contact .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) for more information.
