Salem Lutheran Triathlon Team – Houston Texans Kids Triathlon May 20 and 21, 2017 at NRG Park
It is official – we are now up to 15 Salem students registered for the Houston Texans Kids Triathlon. We hope your child will be next to join the Salem team for this cool event!
Find all the information you need to register at: www.houstontexans.com/kidstriathlon. Please don’t delay as this event is expected to sell out this time.

The Junior Division (ages 6-10) will swim 100Y, bike 3 miles and run 1/2 mile on Saturday, May 20th and the Senior Division ages (11-14) will double each of those distances at their race on Sunday, May 21st. Note: Race age is determined by the age your child will be on Dec 31 of 2017, so any children born in 2006 or earlier will be in the Sr. Division even if they haven’t turned 11 yet.
Free YMCA Training for Houston Texans Kids Triathletes
Local YMCAs are offering a 7-week triathlon training program to prepare athletes (you must be registered for the race in order to participate in the free training). I can confirm that the D. Bradley McWilliams YMCA at Cypress Creek (FM 249 & Cypresswood) actually starts this Friday, March 31st at 5:15-6:15 pm….and there are spots available. Athletes will need to be able to swim 25 yards (without standing or hanging on the wall) to participate in the swim training. Contact trisha.turner@ymcahouston.org for more information or register in person at the YMCA front desk.
NOTE: One more step – please make sure you email Salem parent, Kristi Neal, at Nealkr07@gmail.com to tell her that you have signed your child up for the race as she will be sending out updates to the Salem Team closer to race time.
Go Salem Triathlon Athletes!
