About Ottawa Kids Tri
Since 2001 Ottawa Kids Triathlon (OKT) has been organizing kids triathlons and other multi sport activities. We are a Not for Profit organization registered in Ontario and consisting of 15 volunteers. Each year we try to organize 3-5 kids events and clinics in the Ottawa area. We have the experience and the equipment to help you organize a multi sport event in your community or school. Our goal is to work in partnership with likeminded groups to assist local youth at every level of ability to enjoy safe multi sport outdoor activities and encourage our youth to both value and adopt a lifelong commitment to a healthy and active lifestyle.
We have organized 37 kids triathlons, duathlons, tri skills clinics and school mini duathlons in the Ottawa and Gatineau area with over 6500 kids between the ages of 5 and under to 16-19 years of age participating in safe yet challenging events involving swimming, biking and running distances for each age group. Our kids tri and du races are normally sanctioned by the Ontario Association of Triathletes under the Triathlon Canada Kids of Steel programme.
Volunteer and Member Help
We rely on 50-75 volunteers, both adults and teenagers, to help us at each of our kids. tri/du race events. Smaller school events require fewer volunteers.
Our OKT members not only volunteer to help at the race events and fund raisers but they are also involved with the planning, promotion and other activities normally associated with organizing an outdoor multi sport activity for 200 to 250 kids and their families.
If you are interested in helping us as a member or volunteer or have any questions about Ottawa Kids Tri, the events or On Line Entry please let us know and your enquiry will be promptly handled.
Sponsors and Fund Raiser Events
Ottawa Kids Tri relies on cash and in kind donations from sponsors and fund raising activities each year to keep our entry fees low. Your support of our sponsors is most appreciated.
This year our major fund raiser will be a Ride N Run bike parking available near the start line of the 10K, ½ marathon, marathon and other Ottawa Marathon Weekend races on May 23-24, 2017. Plan to park your bike and store your warm up gear with us. For more information on where to park your bike with us during the Ottawa Marathon Weekend check our events page .
