Due to the current stay-at-home order in the state of New Hampshire, Friends of Aine has paused planning for 2020 summer events.
We will update this page as new information is available.

Thanks to all that helped make the 7th annual Kid’s TRY-athlon a success!

Event Details:

The Friend of Aine Kid’s TRY-athlon is designed for kids aged 4-15, regardless of their athletic ability. The race course design and event timing are provided by our friends at Millennium Running, and our post-race family festival is run by volunteers. This community event now attracts over 325 racers, along with hundreds of spectators and volunteers. All event proceeds support bereavement services offered at the Friends of Aine Center for Grieving Children & Families. For detailed information on race bag pick-up, bib numbers, event parking, schedule and course details, please visit our Race Day Information page.


What Is The Kid’s TRY-athlon?

Aine loved to be outside doing things. In the winter time she was crazy for sledding and in summer she turned into a fish (when she wasn’t riding her bike or running around with her friends). The Kid’s TRY-athlon encompasses the 3 things Aine loved to do all summer: swim, bike and run! Our kid’s TRY-athlon is a race for all kids ages 4 to 15, no matter their athletic ability. It is an opportunity for kids to experience a race without the pressures of worrying if they can make the distances or not – we’ve designed it so that everyone is triumphant!

  • Ages 4 -10 swim 25 yards (no flotation devices allowed), bike 1 mile and run ½ mile
  • Ages 11 -15 swim 50 yards (no flotation devices allowed), bike 2 miles and run 1 mile

We think of this event as a tribute to Aine, as a fundraiser AND as an opportunity to get kids moving. We like to believe that the race is helping kids help themselves, while helping other kids. It’s a win-win!!
