Welcome to the TOUGHKids Triathlon 2013 race series
The West Point Youth Triathlon is part of the TOUGHKids Race Series. All top 3 boys and girls in each specific age will qualify for the TOUGHKids Championship at Croton Point Park, Croton-on-Hudson, NY on September 7th, 2013.
TOUGHKids Championship Series
The series consists of seven youth triathlons. The TOUGHKids 2013 qualifiers:
TOUGHKids Philadelphia, PA - May 11
TOUGHKids Ridgefield, CT - June 1
TOUGHKids Richmond, IN - June 2
TOUGHKids Cheesequake, NJ - June 22
TOUGHKids Muncie IN - July 14
TOUGHKids Syracuse, NY - July 20
TOUGHKids Westpoint, NY - Aug 17
Then the series Championship race takes place at the TOUGHKids Triathlon in Croton, NY on September 7th. At the Championship race, there will be a "Champions Wave" - an elite wave that leads each age-group pack by 3 minutes. This wave is by invitation only. The Championship race has open registration for the first 300 kids. Open registration means that your child will go off in the larger age group wave (not part of the "Champions Wave"). Once 300 slots have filled, the only way to race TOUGHKids is by qualifying in the top 3 of your age at one of the races in the series (e.g. if you are an 11 year old boy, you must be a top 3 finisher of all the 11 year old boys in that race).
Upon completion of one of the qualifying summer races, you will be notified by email that you have earned a slot to the elite wave at the TOUGHKids Championship Race in September if you finished in a top 3 position in your specific age. Invitations will be sent approximately 2 weeks after each race. You will be given a registration code to allow you to register in the event that the TOUGHKids race has sold out.
There are no discounts provided. You will be placed in the "Champions Wave" and receive a different cap color than the rest of your age group. There is no obligation to use this qualifying slot, but note that the registration code is non-transferable. Invitations are the same for each event: 66 per event.
The slots will be divided per age group:
9 Boys / 9 Girls age 4-6
6 Boys / 6 Girls age 7-8
6 Boys / 6 Girls age 9-10
6 Boys / 6 Girls age 11-12
6 Boys / 6 Girls age 13-14
Registration information for TOUGHKids West Point will be available soon.
