The Hendersonville Endurance Athletic Team (HEAT) held its 13th annual Kids Triathlon at the Sumner County Family YMCA last Saturday. The swim, bike and run event drew almost 180 entrants, ranging from ages 6 to 15.

Young competitors were classified into one of two divisions, depending up on their ages. Children (ages 6 through 10) were classified in the junior division, while older children (ages 11 through 15) were placed in the senior division.

Competition distances varied by division, with the junior division having three legs consisting of a 50-yard pool swim, a 2-mile bike ride and a 1 mile run. The senior division distances included a 100-yard pool swim, a 2.4-mile bike ride and a 2-mile run. All swim legs were held in the YMCA's outdoor pool while the bike and run legs were held on an adjacent parking lot and neighboring residential streets.
