Combining running, swimming and bicycling, the triathlon is one of the tougher physical activities that adults can do.
But the kids of Wellington will be taking on that challenge.
The Kids Triathlon kicks off Sunday at 7:30 a.m. at the Aquatics Complex when the two oldest groups start their trek. It’ll be scaled down a little bit with the oldest group swimming 200 yards, biking 4 miles and running 1 and 1/4 miles.
There are five age groups. Registration is already closed for the event.
