There will be a 25-yard swim (children must be able to swim independently), a 3.5-mile bike ride, and a .5-mile run with parental assistance.

The “Junior Divison” is for children ages 7 to 10. Participants will do a 100-yard swim, 3.5-mile bike ride, and .5-mile run. There can be no parental assistance in this division.

The “Senior Division” is for children ages 11 to 14. There will be a 200-yard swim, six-mile bike ride, and one-mile run. There can be no parental assistance in this division either.

A USAT license is required for the Junior and Senior divisions. A license may be purchased for $10 online at usatriathlon.org. Racing age is the participant’s age on Dec. 31, 2012.

Prizes will be awarded to the male and female winners of each age group. In addition, each participant will receive a medal after crossing the finish line.

Cost is $30 for the general public or $24 for JCC members through May 31. Those who register between June 1 and 24 will pay $35 for the general public or $30 for JCC members.

Registration may be done online at www.active.com. Registration forms are also available online at www.JCCindy.org or at a membership desk at the Arthur M. Glick JCC, 6701 Hoover Road, Indianapolis.
