Gaines Park • 1501 N. Australian Ave. West Palm Beach

 

 

 

 

 

DID YOU KNOW...

 

The FitKids Triathlon is the longest running "Youth Only" multisport event in the State of Florida! 

 

 

We were the first and still going strong after 14 years. 

 

 

Our course is designed with the utmost safety possible. 

 

 

The event takes place in Gaines Park which is closed to all traffic. 

 

 

The swim takes place in a pool, the bike on the park road and the run is on the fitness path. 

 

 

Our volunteers are plentiful and always offering a smile and cheer to encourage the participants.  The Vendor/Sponsor  Area is packed with information and FREE items. 

 

 

The refreshments are a tasty array of healthy food and snacks.

 

 

The City of West Palm Beach offers the FitKids Triathlon to promote youth fitness and health. 

 

 

With the financial assistance of our many sponsors, we are able to make this event a high quality, low cost Triathlon.
