Saturday, Oct 26th, 2013 | www.monstertriathlon.com
What started out as a single Halloween sprint event in Keller, TX has developed into three, scary sweatfests! A Monster Triathlon (Keller, Texas) a Monster Triathlon (Denton, Texas) and Kids Triathlon (Keller, Texas). 2013 marks the year 8 for the Monster Kids Triathlon which sells-out months in advance with 350 athletes (ages 4-14).
The Keller Kids Triathlon is part of the Monster Triathlon weekend and a great way to get the kids involved in the sport of triathlon while benefiting a good cause.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Does my child need a helmet?
All cyclists MUST wear helmets.
Which group/wave goes first?

What is “Packet Pick-Up”
Packet Pick-Up is where you’ll receive race day information (race number, shirt, etc.) There is NO RACE DAY PACKET PICK-UP! You may pick your packet up for other kids or have someone pick up your packet. The child does not need to come to packet pick-up.

Are parents allowed on the course to help the child?
ONE parent is allowed in transition while the child transitions from swim to bike & bike to run. Parents are allowed in transition to help the child set-up.
NOTE: Parents are also allowed to do the run portion of the event with their big time triathlete child!
What if we have a bike problem (flat tire, bad chain, etc.) on race day?
Knobbies and Slicks Bike Shop will be on-hand to help.
What else should I be asking?
Now that is a good question. Rather than have you read for the next few hours, we’ve added a MANDATORY parents and child meeting at the race site at 7:10 a.m. on race day. In a nutshell, don’t stress. Simply show up with a swimsuit, bike & helmet and some running shoes. We will take it from there.
