Escape from School® Youth Triathlon 100 Yard Swim~2.4 Mile Bike~0.4 Mile Run Bear, DE - June 11, 2011 Bring your Moms and Dads to the Tri-It Triathlon the next day. There’s a lot about the Piranha series that is unique. The scoring system gives racers a sense of being a part of something greater, it creates the healthy rivalries that make us want to go faster. The club competition also creates camaraderie through competition, and the youth series exposes children to healthy activity and sportsmanship. The prize money is excellent- $500 to the winner and money for the top three with an equal payout to men and women. While most of us aren’t schlepping our carloads of equipment to races for money, it does draw better competition, which makes for a more entertaining race. Thanks to the point system, those of us who do not finish in the money still have a reason to care.
