This is the third year of the event.

New York's Executive Director for NCMEC Ed Suk discussed the importance of the duathlon Monday on News 8 at Noon. 

There's running and biking for the kids, but a bigger purpose as well.  "The bigger purpose is safety and child safety, and that's our big thing," said Suk.  "We're always focusing on keeping kids safer in their communities, keeping kids safer on the internet and this is an awareness event as well as a fun fitness event."

The Kids Duathlon is open to children ages 5 to 13.  Registration/check in starts at 8:00 a.m. with the race beginning at 9:00 a.m.  The race distances will vary by age group.

The cost of the duathlon is $25.  Kids are encouraged to raise more money to be entered in to a raffle for $250 towards a new bike at Bert's Bike on Park Avenue.

In addition to the running and biking, there will be opportunities to create a child ID, face painting and karate demos.

You are encouraged to pre-register online.  For more information, or to register, click here.
