Are your kids looking to really enjoy the outdoors this summer with some friendly competition? Our friends at the Vernon Hills Park District are holding the Mighty Kids Triathlon, set for Sunday, June 3rd from 8 a.m. to noon. Kicking off at the Lakeview Fitness Center at 700 Lakeview Parkway, our team at Knauz Autopark is proud to be one of the sponsors. Kids ages 6 to 12 years old are encouraged to participate in a contest featuring swimming, biking and running. The swimming portion will take place at the Lakeview Pool, while the biking and running components will happen in Deerpath Park. Those in the Mighty Kids Triathlon will be placed in groups based on their age and the distances will be:


Ages 6-7 — Swim for 25 yards, bike for 1 mile and run for .5 mile

Ages 8-10 — Swim for 50 yards, bike for 2 miles and run for 1 mile

Ages 11-12 — Swim for 100 yards, bike for 2 miles and run for 1 mile

Each participant of the Mighty Kids Triathlon will receive a T-shirt, goody bag, refreshments and a medal. Trophies will be presented to the top performers of each age group at the end of the competition. The entry fee is $25 and those interested are asked to register online by Friday, June 1st. In the case of inclement weather, the event will be canceled and partial refunds will be given. Here at Knauz Autopark, we are excited to be #KnauzInTheCommunity for this event because it encourages children to enjoy some exercise and get outside for some summer fun.
