Kids of Steel

On June 21, we held the second annual Paradigm Naturopathic Kids of Steel Triathlon.

From 9 to 11 a.m., close to 200 kids swam in Okanagan Lake, biked on Tronson Rd and ran on Lakeshore Road. As each participant crossed the finish line, a medal was placed around their neck by Nathan Champness, a professional triathlete.

This fun triathlon is a very positive, inspiring and healthy event for the kids in our community and beyond and we are thrilled that our community’s interest has meant that we have reached our capacity for registration two years in a row.

The organizing committee would like to thank the residents on Tronson Road for being so respectful and supportive of the kids’ safety and supporting this event.

We would love to reduce road hazards even further next year by requesting a full road closure from 9 to 11 a.m. to ensure the safety of our local and visiting athletes.

Thanks again.
