Children to test skills in triathlon


Submitted More than 50 students from all across the county participated in the kid's triathlon sponsored by the Boys and Girls Club of Franklin in June. Youngsters swam at the Franklin Community High School pool, biked around the building and then ran on the school's track. Reese Phillips is 6 years old from Franklin.

Children are training to swim 25 yards and then jump on a bike and ride more than a mile at Franklin Community High School. Finally, they will head to the track and run a half-mile.

The Boys and Girls Club of Franklin will stage its second Kids Triathlon on May 31, an event where kids can get a taste of an Ironman competition by taking summer activities of biking and swimming to a new level.

Organizers say the event is more than a fundraiser for the club. It’s a way to get children active, which is a mission of the club.
