In addition, kids ages 3 – 6 also participate in a non-competitive, abbreviated version of the course for fun, known as the Tiny Tots division, which consists of a 10 meter run, 250 meter bike and 50 meter run.

Every Iron Kids participant receives a finisher’s medal, with top awards going to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners in the Triathlon age group categories.

Matthew Oliveira was the first male across the line in 23:35, while Madelyn Moore was the first female finisher in a time of 28:24.
