Awards will be given to the top (3) male and female athletes in each age group (6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15). We will also give awards for Courage and Sportsmanship which are handed out to athletes who demonstrate bravery, display an act of kindness, or overcome a challenge.

Weather Policy:
In the event of rain, the triathlon will proceed as planned. In the event of lightening, we will delay the start or progress of the event until the threat of lightening is gone. We will not reschedule the triathlon in the event of inclement weather.
