Group wants to get kids involved in multi-sports

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

Kim Katko has been an active member of multi-sports events for some time.
But when she saw her son run out of gas in short order while participating in a weekly Pace Race, she realized then and there a group to help kids get and stay in shape would probably be a good thing to have.
“He took off, went 500 yards and then he got an ache in his side,” Katko said. “I was like, ‘why am I having him race when he doesn’t train?’”
Katko and Susie Schillaci formed the Triatomics Youth Group to fill that void.
The Triatomics is an active club that promotes multi-sport events and training for those events. The club puts on the Atomic Man Duathlon in the spring and usually has a big presence for other events such as the upcoming Los Alamos Triathlon.
The Triatomics’ Youth Group is nominally for kids ages 6-15, but Katko admits that age range isn’t strictly enforced. They will take kids so long as they can swim without aid and can keep themselves safe.
Safety is one of the primary concerns for the group. Participants are steered away from areas where they might encounter vehicle traffic if possible and are broken into small groups with parents closely monitoring their whereabouts.
