Come out in August 2017 for the third annual Cereal City Kids Triathlon!  Cereal City Kids Triathlon is a branch of Cereal City Triathlon. The goal is to promote healthy, active lifestyles for kids ages 4-13 and under in a fun, non-intimidating atmosphere. Cereal City Kids will be hosting its third annual event with a fun triathlon to teach kids the joy of multi-sport events as well as to promote physical fitness as a fun, family friendly activity.  We expect about 200 kids/athletes at multiple levels of ability to participate!


The Cereal City Kids Triathlon can be done either as (1) the Triathlon as a single event or (2) as a 4-part race series.  Click here to find out more!

Join Cereal City Athletics for this family friendly event. Participants will enjoy a leisure paddle down the Kalamazoo River ending with a picnic. Kayaks will be available for rental for those who do not have one available.  Check out the Paddles and Picnic event page for registration and for more information.

 Battle Creek Half Marathon and 5k: July 1, 2017

BC Ice Cream Century: June 3, 2017

Inspired by our very own BCPD Chief Blocker, the Chief's Challenge is 15 miles of biking, 7 miles of paddling, and 7.5 miles of running in that order.  This is not your traditional triathlon, nor is it easy!  Come on out for a real challenge and see if you can finish before the Chief (but, fair warning, he's REALLY fast!)

Active minded. Community Driven. Adventure ready.
