You can enter a KOS race with a minimum of equipment. All you need is:

  • a bike ( road or mountain bike), an approved helmet, running shoes

  •  swim suit, goggles (if desired) T-shirt or race singlet for boys,

  • a SMILE and a DESIRE TO HAVE FUN and finish

For further information about KOS races or the KIDS OF STEEL program, please contact Marian Grant at triathlonpei@gmail.com and go to tripei.com to check the summer KOS schedule of events and clinics.
