Summer is leaving us, hopefully bringing the onset of crisp fall temps, changing leaves and eventually…winter!  Lots of things in town are ending, including our beach days, Live at Lakeview and the the last of the Tahoe Kids Tri series, which involves a ton of kids ages 3-13, being awesome.  I’m always excited to be their on course and finish line photographer.  Jason and his partner Sean donate countless hours providing our community with awesome events like this one!

This year the Tahoe Tri Club is hosting two events for the kids: one was July 13, 2014 and the 2nd was on August 24, 2014.  Both events are held at the South Lake Tahoe Recreation Center.  The events entail a pool swim and a flat, paved bike and run course.

If you missed these awesome events, the Tahoe Tri Club is putting on a slew of Tahoe Fun runs this fall.  For more information and to register head over to the the fun run website.  There will be a Halloween themed race at the end of October, a Thanksgiving race and a Jingle Jog.  The race director, Jason Collin can be reached at Jason@tahoetriclub.com and (530) 307-3316.

Here are a few of my favorite photos from the afternoon.  If your child participated in the event, you can view, download, share to social media and order prints via this gallery link.

September has finally arrived and with it comes the end of some awesome things: no more Live at Lakeview, no more sunshine at 8:30 PM, no more kids’ triathlon events.

Thankfully, the Tahoe Tri Club is going to offer a series of super awesome fun runs for all ages this fall called the Run through the Holidays Series featuring a Freakin’ Fun Run on Oct 13th, a Turkey Trot on Nov 17th, and the Jingle Jog Hot Chocolate Run on Dec 15th.  If you register for all three events at once you save $30 in registration fees so register today and I’ll be out there to snap your finish line photo!

Sponsoring our local Tahoe Kids Tri Series as a photographer is a no brainer for me and not just because I get to listen to parents yell at their kids to go faster or hurry up or take their helmet off (serious competitors, those parents) or because sometimes the kids break down in tears when they don’t get 1st place (happens) but mostly because I love swimming, running and cycling myself.

Montage-3The 2nd event of the summer was held this past Sunday at the South Lake Tahoe Parks and Recreation Department on Rufus Allen Blvd, which is where all of the events will be held from now on.  The new venue makes it much easier for me to grab action shots of the race itself and all the finish line shots, which is awesome.

Overall, it was an absolute delight to attend, as always, and a great way to volunteer my time.  If you have a kid and they haven’t yet participated in this awesome home grown local event, get them out there at the next one!  The kids LOVE it and they are all smiling ear to ear after they finish, regardless of any tears spilled mid-race.  These events are nothing short of fantastic and there are age group awards for every single age increment, which means more kids get the feeling of accomplishment from standing on the podium.  A 2 year old competed for the second time this summer – if he can do it, any kid can do it!
