What is a Resilinator?
It’s a kid who knows how to roll with the punches in life. A kid who keeps functioning when adversity strikes. A kid who faces setbacks and refuses to quit.
What’s the Resilinator?
Set on Minnesota's finest disc golf course, the Resilinator is a buddy race designed to test your physical strength, mental toughness, and teamwork. Three Rivers Park District is again our host partner for this first-of-its-kind adventure race with obstacles and challenges you'll conquer buddy pairs racing together.

Each pair must include at least one kid between the age of 7 and 17, plus a kid or adult buddy between the age 7 to 107. Adult buddies must have a moderate fitness level, as this race is designed to be challenging.

Buddy Combination Ideas:
– Two Friends
– Two Siblings
– Kid/Parent
– Kid/Mentor
– Kid/Grandparent
– Kid/Coach

Once you've chosen your racing buddy, make sure he or she registers for the event and chooses the same time slot you selected so you can start together.

REGISTRATION IS OPEN!

MAKE YOUR RACE COUNT FOR KIDS IN NEED
The BreakAway Kids Tri is the one time each year we ask kids to play it forward by fundraising to help with two needs:

Fund a week-long adventure camp for kids with cancer or blood disorders and their siblings
Fund our scholarship & support program so we never have to say no to kids who want to participate in our programs & events.

All kids/siblings who raise $300 will be recognized at the race on our stage, receive a custom award, and be eligible for prize drawings.
