Bike, run, slide! Children ages 3 to 6 can experience what it's like to be a real triathlete when they participate in My First TRYathlon.
Children will bike and run a short course around The Pointe in Ballwin Commons and climb up an inflatable water slide for an exciting ride back to the bottom. Then they'll finish strong by collecting a finisher medal from the honorary guests.
My First TRYathlon will be held August 24 from 10 to 11 a.m. at The Pointe in Ballwin. Cost is $5-$8 per child depending on residency. Registration is required.
