It will be held this Saturday, July 13, for children ages 10 to 17, at Long Beach. The youth distance triathlon, designed specifically with safety in mind, features a 300-yard open water swim in shallow water, a 7-mile open-road ride with designated bike lanes and a 1.5-mile run on a closed course. Racers should arrive no later than 7 a.m., with registration opening on-site at 6:30 a.m. The race starts at 7:30.
