COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. -- On your mark, get set, go! Today marks a big day for one southwest Florida organization, the Naples Area Triathletes. Dozens of children participated in a triathlon .

From Naples ARea Triathletes:
"We are excited to announce that we are expanding from one race to three, giving kids even more opportunities to stay active over the summer! 

Please make plans to join us at North Collier Regional Park on the Saturday mornings of June 14th, July 12th, and August 16th for a morning of running, biking, and swimming (yes, it is in reverse order, but we’ve found it works best for the kids).  And speaking of swimming, it takes place in the Lazy River, how cool is that?!?! 

And for those who are new to the sport of triathlon, we are offering a FREE training clinic on Saturday, May 31st at 8:30am. 

This informational session will teach kids how to properly transition from running to biking and from biking to swimming as well as allow them to train on the actual race course."
