Ironkids Triathlon In Sioux Falls

June 16, 2012, 10:12 PM by Lindsey Branwall

Ironkids Triathlon In Sioux Falls
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

They're on their marks, and they've been ready. Now, it's go time for more than 200 youngsters competed in the Fourth Annual Ironkids Triathlon Saturday.

They began swimming, biking and running at nine in the morning.

The "Z3" team based out of Iowa was one of the biggest players. A handful of the racers on the team just got back from a triathlon in Omaha last week.

“I did the Omaha one [triathlon] two weeks ago,” triathlete Sammy Pose said.

This race is a new experience for team members Emma and Chloe Houwman.

"This is our first race of the year,” triathlete Emma Houwman said.

The sisters hail from Sioux Falls, and like most siblings, they're inseparable.

"Sometimes we do runs and bikes together,” Emma said.

"And sometimes we run, like, make up our little run games,” Chloe said.

Kristi Masterson directed the triathlon.

“Things have gone very, very well today,” Masterson said.

The race is a part of this weekend's Legends event. Most of the Legends clinics allow kids to try new sports, but the triathlon is for those a little more developed.

“We saw a need to have an event that was a little more competitive that would give people an opportunity to try the swim, bike and run,” Masterson said.

And out of all three, every kid seemed to have their favorite.

"Probably the run and the bike,” Emma said.

"The swim and the bike,” Chloe said.

"I like the bike because it’s really relaxing,” triathlete Emily Nelson said.

Even though they're a tight-knit team, "Z3" wants everyone to be number one.

"I like cheering for everybody because everybody deserves a chance to be cheered for,” triathlete Megan Nelson said.

And in a triathlon, triple the support is always welcomed.

The money raised from Saturday's race goes right back to the Legends for Kids program.
