The McCleskey-East Cobb and Northeast Cobb YMCAs will be two of 11 host sites around Atlanta offering the sessions. Training sessions will be Tuesdays from 7 to 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 to 10 a.m., until the big race at the West Gwinnett Aquatic Center in Norcross.
There will be events for kids ages 6 to 10 (100-yard swim, 3-mile bike and 0.5-mile run) and 11 to 15 (200-yard swim, 6-mile bike and 1-mile run).
The training sessions will focus on instructing kids on the swimming, biking, running and transitioning involved in a triathlon. Participants also will receive a weekly workout plan to keep them active leading up to the race.
