Chapel Hill and Carrboro gained a new crop of accomplished triathletes on Sun. May 6 at the Chapel Hill Country Club. Hundreds of local kids, plus families, volunteers and community businesses, turned out for the sixth annual Swim for Smiles Youth Triathlon, which raises money for the N.C. Children's Hospital. The event offers two course options: a shorter distance course and a longer one. All participants received a medal for finishing, and the top three runners in each age group won a prize - this year, they scored a pair of New Balance tennis shoes.
