Get Healthy Texas Kids Triathlon
Sat, Sept 28th, 2013
What started out as a single Halloween sprint event in Keller, TX helped bring to life another GREAT kids and family triathlon! Get ready for the CBS 11′s Get Healthy Texas Kids and Family Triathlon, a part of Rock the Park celebration in Keller, TX! Kids ages 4-13 will swim in the Keller Natatorium, bike on (closed) Bear Creek Parkway and run on the beautiful Keller trails. This is all about health and fitness for your children, and to benefit the Keller ISD athletic fund.
