Conway, Ark. (July 17, 2009)  The First Security Conway Kids Triathlon will be held at 8:00 a.m. Saturday, August 8, 2009, at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway, Arkansas. The event is for kids ages 6 – 15 years by 12/31/09. The event will challenge participants in three categories: swimming, biking and running. Each competitor will receive a t-shirt and a custom medal will go to all who complete the race course.
Last year’s race was incredible with about 350 participants and we’re planning for an even larger race this year, said Shannon Milam, co-race director. We are expecting and planning for 400 kids! We have participants from all over Arkansas, as well as surrounding states. Our goal is to encourage life long sport participation and healthy lifestyle activities.  All proceeds for the event will be donated to CASA (Central Arkansas Special Advocates). The organization provides advocates for children in foster care in this area.”
