Story and photography by Eric Lusk

The Try Boro Kids Races Series is a non-profit organization that puts on unique endurance events to help get kids active. Founded in 2009 with one triathlon, the original event was hosted by Murfreesboro Parks and Recreation and their SportsCom facility.

That first year saw 175 kids swim, bike, and run and since then the series has hosted 17 events. For the past 4 years, the series has hosted a 2.5K/5K Run in May, a triathlon in August, and a trail run in October. The Try Boro 2.5K/5K Run was held this past May 11th with nearly 200 kids and many adults joining in the fun!
