We will be offering 3 in-person course distances. See below for courses and approximate distances. Each course has a recommended age range, but we encourage you to select the course distance that best matches your child’s abilities, regardless of age. If your athlete uses a bike with training wheels, we strongly recommend that they register for the Short Course. There is also an at-home option for participants who are interested in a virtual race.
Long Course (recommended ages 12-14): Bike 3.3 miles, Run 0.87 mile
Long Course athletes will need to complete 2 loops on a portion of this Bike course. Long Course athletes will need to keep track of their own number of loops while biking. You may want to station an adult from your group at the loop location along the course if you think it may be a challenge for your child to keep track of their own number of loops.
Medium Course (recommended ages 7-10): Bike 2 miles, Run 0.59 miles
Short Course (recommended ages 3-6): Bike 0.33 mile, Run 0.33 miles
At-Home: Complete your race wherever and whenever you like! Please follow all traffic rules and safety recommendations as you complete your race.
See the Course Maps below to view each course.
The Bike Course will be on Warner Park paths and on the streets south of Warner Park. There is an uphill portion on the park path for the Long and Medium courses and an uphill portion on the street loop portion of the Long course.
The Run Course will be on paths, grass, and sidewalks around Warner Park. There may be some uneven terrain to navigate. Volunteers will be stationed along the course to help direct the athletes.

As we return to in-person racing, we want to keep you informed on the ways we are keeping our events safe for participants, volunteers, and staff. Here are a few things you can expect when participating in a Tri 4 Schools event in 2023:
- All event activities are outdoors, which allows for good air circulation and opportunities for social distancing.
- We will follow any local health recommendations.
- Participants will start their race individually, spread across various wave times, to maintain distancing on the course and at the race site.
- We ask that any participant, volunteer, or spectator who is experiencing any illness symptoms or has recently tested positive for COVID to refrain from attending the event.
- Even with the return to in-person racing, we will continue to offer an “at-home” option for any participants who would prefer to complete their race at home.
