JUNE 2, 2019. 7:30 A.M. FAIRHOPE PIER.
This year, we are excited to co-host the Jubilee Kids Triathlon with a dedicated group of volunteers from the Eastern Shore Triathlon Club who have run the event over the past three years.
Join us in the beautiful city of Fairhope, AL for the Jubilee Kids Triathlon on Sunday, June 2 at 7:30 a.m. at the Fairhope Pier. With numerous shops, restaurants, and kid-friendly activities, Fairhope is the perfect race destination for the whole family to enjoy. Parents can race in the Grandman Triathlon at the same site the day before and then watch their kids race the next morning on Sunday!
The race is open to children ages 7-15 (As of December 31, 2019). Participants will compete in the following categories according to their age division:
Wave 1: Mullets (Ages 13-15)
Wave 2: Flounders (Ages 11-12)
Wave 3: Crabs (Ages 9-10)
Wave 4: Shrimps (Ages 7-8)
The Jubilee Kids Triathlon is a USA Triathlon sanctioned event and all USAT rules will be followed and strictly enforced. It is the responsibility of the athlete to be familiar with those rules, which can be found at www.usatriathlon.org.

Fairhope Avenue takes you directly to the pier. Start looking for parking! There should be signs directing you along the way as well as racers, volunteers, and race directors to show you where to park. See the course map if you have questions.

The race course is located within a residential area, so the Jubilee Kids Triathlon race hosts insist that racers use parking available in downtown Fairhope.
Please do not park in residential yards or block driveways.
YOUR VEHICLE WILL BE TOWED!
There is no parking at the race site after the Expo Friday evening.
VERY IMPORTANT: Please do not leave your car at the race site on Saturday Night or it will be towed. The area surrounding the rose garden is closed to parking beginning on Saturday, June 2 at 6 p.m. in order to set up the transition area.
