Tampa Bay Kids Triathlon

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 6-14 are eligible to participate. Participants will be separated into three-waves for the race. The three waves will be categorized by age range so that participants are still competing alongside others in their age group. 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.

A portion of registration fees is donated to the Friedreich’s Ataxia Research Alliance (FARA).
