The 2018 race happens on Sunday, May 6th, 2018. This marks a departure from previous years, in that it is not on Mother's day. Athletes should be at Brennan Park (1009 Centennial Way) by 8:00. The race begins between 8:50 and 9:30, depending on age, so spectators can show up a bit later. Full details about how Race Day will proceed are on the race day page.
- Age categories for all Kids of Steel races is determined by your age on December 31 in the race year.
- Life jackets are NOT allowed in the pool. Flotatation devices will be available for athletes that need extra assistance. Alternately, athletes who cannot swim one length comfortably could race on a team while they work on their swimming.
- Road bikes are not appropriate for the bike courses which include trails and gravel.
