Sioux Falls, SD
Many kids these days have a reputation of spending more time inside than out, but hundreds of kids in KELOLAND are breaking that stereotype.
Wall Lake Park was filled with active children this morning for the Hy-Vee Kids Fit Triathlon.
251 children between the ages of six and 15 swam, biked, and ran their way to the finish line, while family and friends cheered them on along the way.
The goal of this event was to promote a healthy and active lifestyle for children.
“To see these kids be competitive and be active and want to do good, you know, it just, you know they're going to grow up and be great, great adults,” Triathlon Director Kristi Masterson.
The top 15 boys and top 15 girls at each age level will move on to compete in the Hy-Vee Kids Championship Triathlon in Des Moines, Iowa at the end of August.
