Southern Village 1st Annual Swim for Smiles

Swim for Smiles Family Triathlon Registration NOW OPEN!

This is an event everyone needs to seriously consider participation!  Designed to be the first-ever FAMILY Triathlon in NC, the Swim for Smiles  Family Triathlon will be held in the beautiful Southern Village neighborhood in Chapel Hill, NC and will accommodate over 200 Relay teams and 150 Individual Entries.

The race will start in the 25-meter pool uniquely situated in the middle of the neighborhood. The race transitions into an 11-mile bike ride through the Chatham County countryside and eventually back into Southern Village via a neighborhood bike path.  You finish the race running on one of the flattest run segments of any triathlon course in North Carolina – along a jogging trail that takes you through the heart of the neighborhood.  The Swim for Smiles Family Triathlon is an open registration event (meaning, it’s designed for all ages to participate – we’re even willing to allow runners to push jogging strollers) that will be USA-Triathlon sanctioned. This is truly a unique event and opportunity for families of all ages to compete together for a great cause (as we’re giving all the money we make to the NC Children’s Hospital – less than 2-miles away from where the race will be held).  And, best of all, the relay teams can be made up of all adults, all kids OR a mixture of kids and adults as we will award prizes for the Top-3 teams in each category in addition to individual kid and adult entry prizes.

The Swim for Smiles Family Triathlon is a Sprint Triathlon distance race with an easy swim, moderate bike course with rolling hills and finishes with an easy to moderate run.
