The Event Development Institute (EDI), in conjunction with Adventure Island, hosts the annual Tampa Bay Kids Triathlon (TBKT). The TBKT offers youth athletes, experienced and first-timers alike, the unique opportunity to swim, bike and run in and around Busch Gardens’® premier water park, Adventure Island.
Boys and girls ages 6-10 (junior varsity division) and 11-14 (varsity division) are eligible to participate. The first 400 registrants receive a complimentary ‘Stay and Play’ ticket to Adventure Island®, valid on race day only. All participants receive a race-day ‘Swag Bag’, including an official Under Armour race shirt, in addition to a finisher’s medal upon completion of the race. The top three male and female finishers in each age group category will earn a trophy along with an additional Adventure Island ‘Stay and Play’ ticket.
A portion of registration fees is donated to the Friedreich’s Ataxia Research Alliance (FARA).
