Endorphin Fitness is partnering with Virginia Home for Boys and Girls (VHBG) to host the 6th Annual Youth Triathlon. 100% of the proceeds from this event benefit the children at VHBG. The race is open to ages 5-14 years and features a pool swim, bike course and a run on level playing fields. Children also have the option to experience a 4-day Youth Triathlon Camp (the week prior to race day) instructed by Endorphin Fitness. This camp prepares participants with essential skills of the sport in a safe and fun environment. Triathlons are a great way for any child to experience the benefits of a healthy lifestyle focused on daily exercise and good nutrition. The triathlon helps youth enhance their physical and athletic capabilities, and gain social skills such as teamwork, dedication, and sportsmanship. Youth at VHBG also participate in the event and cheer on their neighbors and other community children. This triathlon helps build a sense of community and gives VHBG kids an opportunity to learn how to give back.
