Youth Race Info

2021 Youth Race & Florida youth team championships 

Nothing is more fun than watching our youngest racers compete in one of their first races, their determination and pride are infectious. Likewise with our older children, with years of experience under their race belts, Heartland Triathlon is the perfect place to test their mettle and set new PRs! Seniors & Juniors race all three legs on closed courses that are well manned by volunteers with years of experience helping us put on the best race in Florida and we employ local law enforcement to enforce road closures. Racing starts at 7:30 a.m. sharp. Transition closes 10 minutes prior and parents are NOT allowed into transition but worry not, our transition volunteers are on hand to help participants find the proper rack. Please help your kids by making sure they have everything they need before getting in line for body marking at the transition entrance (the side closest to the lake).

Transition Tip Tuesday 🏁 Body Marking! ‼️IMPORTANT‼️This year, our volunteers will NOT be providing body marking at transition entry! All athletes must be pre-marked before entering transition. So where do the markings go? 🤷‍♂️ Your race number must be visibly marked on your left and right arms between your shoulder and bicep 💪 AND on your left and right leg between your ankle and knee. 👍 Do use a large, felt-tipped, permanent marker to write your body markings. 👎 Don’t put on lotion or sunscreen before marking. 👍 Do put on any compression socks/sleeves you’ll wear during the race BEFORE marking to ensure your markings will still be visible with them on. 👎 Don’t include any other numbers! Your race number is the only number you need to mark on your body. 👍 Do make sure your body marking numbers match the numbers on your bike sticker, helmet sticker and run bib. 👍 Do have a friend help you! Or purchase tri tattoos if you are flying solo for the race ☺️Questions?! Send us a message or ask a race volunteer at packet pickup! #heartlandtri #triheartland #heartlandtri2021 #heartlandtri #racelocal #triathlon #trilife #triathlete #triathlonlife #usat #usatsoutheast #triathlon_lifestyles #triathletesunite #triathlontraining #triathlon #triathlonchallenge #triathlonmotivation #mightymujertri #trikids #duathlon #aquabike ...
