It’s good to be young! Join all the little ones for the Little Buggers Kids Triathlon. Swim in Corcoran's Pond, bike on a nice, flat road, and run the beginning and end portions of the adult tris, then finish under the grand Black Fly Finish arch that all the old folks do! This is a non-competitive, fun event for all young’uns, age 6-12. When you cross the finish line, be sure to receive your medal! All kids registered by June 6, 2012 will also receive a special Little Buggers Kids Tri T-shirt. A special podium will be set up, to snap pics of your child with their finisher medal.
If you have younger children (4-5 years old) who you'd like to accompany during the Little Buggers Kids Triathlon, you are more than welcome to swim, bike, and run with them. We ask that you begin following all kids who will be participating on their own.
$50 (after June 6, 2012: $55.00)

It's great to be a kid....It's not so great to be a kid watching adults run around in spandex. To make the kiddos feel at home, we'll be offering a bunch of activities for them. There will be arts and crafts and more. There will also be a coloring contest, so make sure your kids stop by and color in Buzz the Black Fly!
In addition, there will be a special pie-eating contest for the kids, to take place right before the awards. Sign up at the Kids Zone.
In addition, be on the lookout for Bonk The Moose, who'll be handing out Black Fly Bucks, to be redeemed at the Kids Zone for special gifts!
