Youth memberships purchased with registration for the anticipated 9/17/17 triathlon will still be in effect for the rescheduled June 2018 event. Kim is trying to determine how best to transfer adult USAT one-day memberships, and will be in touch with all registrants 18 and older.
This is NOT just an event for children with disabilities, but an inclusive race for everyone ~ a race for kids of ALL abilities. Children and young adults with disabilities are welcome and encouraged to compete in the swim, bike, and run ~ or just one event (with assistance if necessary) as the captain of a relay team. Other kids may or register as assistants or relay team members for these inclusive teams or “try a tri!” (compete all three events).
Two Ways to "Tri!"
- Individual Event
- Child with or without a (dis)ability
- Swim, bike AND run
- No assistants
- Chaperone allowed
- Team event
- Captain must have a (dis)ability
- Swim, bike OR run
- Teammates needed
- Assistants allowed
- Chaperone allowed
Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of our sponsors, Mikayla’s Voice is able to waive all entry fees. The only fee to participate is required by and paid to USA Triathlon for membership ($10 child/$15 adult).
Please understand that all participants (athletes, assistants and chaperones ~ anyone on the race course during the race!) must still register for Mikayla’s Voice Tri for Inclusion and be a member of USA Triathlon (USAT) as this is a sanctioned event. In addition, the registration process will also ask you to agree to the following Tri for Inclusion online photo release. Please click on the link to review the photo release, read all information below and click the link to register online with imAthlete!
If you require assistance with registration, please feel free to call or email Kim at (610) 746-2323 or through our contact form. She is happy to help!
Packet pick-up will be Friday, June 23rd from 3-7pm at Parkland under the large tent in the front of the school. All individual athletes and relay team captains should plan to pick-up their race packets and t-shirts. We can walk the athletes and families through the steps to follow Saturday morning upon arrival. This is a good time for teammates to spend a bit of time together before the big day and ask any questions they may have about race day.
