Join us for the 11th Annual SOS4KIDS Race in New Paltz! 

WHEN: Aug 29, 2020 – 8AM Start

WHERE:  Moriello Pool (New Paltz)

The SOS4Kids is designed to be an age and distance appropriate triathlon modeled off the Survival of the Shawangunks multi-stage triathlon for adults.  Our goal is to introduce young girls and boys to the sport of triathlon and promote a healthy and active lifestyle for kids and their parents throughout Hudson Valley.  

The SOS4Kids is put on by a group of volunteers who are dedicated to this purpose and without whom this race would not be possible.  

We are supported by the SOS Race Committee who both sponsors the race and volunteers to assist kids throughout the course - even serving up ice cream at the post-race awards ceremony.
