Tar Heel Youth Triathlon Series
Kids Tri NC is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing multisport activities for youth in North Carolina. Founded in 2012 to produce the North Carolina Multisport Expo and Conference at Duke University, the organization also hosted youth triathlon clinics in conjunction with the Expo. We produced the Expo again in 2013 and as well as two days of youth triathlon clinics. That same year, we also produced the inaugural Tar Heel Youth Triathlon in Chapel Hill in partnership with Triangle Multisport. As we narrowed our focus to triathlon clinics and races for youth, we changed the name of our organization to Kids Tri NC.
Since then, we’ve expanded the Tar Heel Youth Triathlon to a 3-race series, with two races in Chapel Hill (Homestead Aquatic Center and Briar Chapel Community), and Cary, North Carolina. We’ve also hosted triathlon clinics with Olympian Sheila Taormina and other USAT-certified youth coaches, including Dave Williams, Monette Williams, and Paul Bloom.
Our mission is to promote youth fitness and fun through multisport activities.
Our vision is to increase the number of youth involved in multisport in the State of North Carolina.
Proceeds from our events support local youth development and sports programs including Girls on the Run of the Triangle, Be Loud! Sophie Foundation, Triangle Bike Works and the University of North Carolina Triathlon Club. We also provide financial assistance to participate in our races and clinics for kids who could not otherwise participate.
