About a thousand children ages five to 15 took part in the first ever Houston Kids Triathlon on Sunday at the University of Houston.

Older athletes swam 100 yards, biked for six miles and ran a mile.

The younger kids covered half those distances.

The Houston event was the largest kids triathlon ever held in Texas and is one the five largest that will be held in the United States this year.
