Open to children 6 to 14 years old, Alaska IronKids Philippines is the local junior version of the international triathlon series, Ironman. Triathlon is a race that features three sporting events: running, swimming and biking. The competition is open to kids who are new to the sport and those who have already joined other triathlon events.
Alaska Ironkids aims to promote a well-balanced lifestyle for kids of today, who are used to staying indoors with TV, videogame console and the Internet as companions. Ironkids is also the perfect venue for families to bond and for parents to demonstrate in “real-time” that being HEALTHY can also be fun.
After a successful first year, Alaska IronKids is back to help kids develop the values of discipline, hard work, integrity and determination through a series of races. It has six races lined up for 2013 — two run races, two aquathlons and two triathlons.
