Tri for Tykes 

When: Sat., Aug. 6 2011
Get the kids off the couch and onto the race course this morning for the Greater Cleveland Youth Triathlon in Mentor. More than 150 youngsters ages 7 to 14 will gather at Headlands Beach to compete in a shortened version of the grown-ups' Greater Cleveland Triathlon, which will be held tomorrow. Two different groupings separate "teens" from "tweens" to make things fair, and everyone goes home with a T-shirt and a slick pair of Boston Bill sunglasses. "It's so important for the kids to get out there and compete instead of sitting at home with their computers and PlayStations," says coordinator Mickey Rzymek. Bring $35 to 9601 Headlands Rd. for race-day registration. Both youth age groups will start at 8 a.m., and all participants must have a USAT membership to race. (Snag one for $5 at usatriathlon.org.)
