Description:   The Riverwinds Triathlon continues in 2020 with some new additions!  The triathlon will start with a 200 yard indoor pool swim then head outside for a 10.5 mile bike on a new and improved course, followed by a 5K run on the Riverwinds property.  Also available are Duathlon, Aquabike, and Relay options. 

New in 2020 is a 5K option for our athletes that prefer only the run portion of the race. 

Youth Events have also been added this year, starting with a Free Kids Fun Run to be held on Saturday, April 25th at 6:00pm.  The fun run will be a 0.5 mile run on a closed course.  The run is Free but we still need you to register your child. 

The Youth Splash and Dash for your youth athletes 7-15 years old will start at 10:15am on Sunday, April 26th.  There are two categories of athletes for the Youth Splash and Dash.  Athletes ages 7-10 will swim 100 yards at the indoor pool then head outside for a 1K run.  Athletes ages 11-15 will swim 200 yards and run 2K.

Charity Partner:  

We are thrilled to have the West Deptford Police Athletic League (WD PAL) as our charity partner for the 2020 Riverwinds Triathlon.  WD PAL offers programs  such as Law Enforcement Against Drugs, WDPD Junior Police Academy, WD PAL Punt, Pass, and Kick Competition, and Bicycle Helmet Safety Rewards.  WDPD feels that the positive interaction their officers have with the children through these types of programs is invaluable and allows them to reach children that may need positive influences in their lives.  WD PAL is a non-profit organization and 100% of donations go toward these programs.  We will be donating a portion of the profit from the Riverwinds Triathlon to WD PAL.  You will have the option to donate to WD PAL as you go through the registration process.
