On Regatta Day, over 400 children participate in the Kids of Steel. They come with bikes, swim gear, sneakers and their cheering/support groups of parents and grandparents in tow.  They all share the same goal - to complete their very own triathlon. The ages range from 5 to 15 and the athletes range from first timers to veterans of the event but they are all excited about the event and give their all on the three segments of the event (swim, bike and run). All children are winners and receive a medal for their accomplishment which many wear for the entire day. Hopefully, they all have a new love for the sport of triathlon and will become the next generation of triathletes in the province. Special thanks to all of volunteers who give their time to make this a special day for so many children & parents.
