Riverside Presbyterian Day School


Teaching children to live a healthy lifestyle so they are fit for life has long been a part of the curriculum at RPDS. Established in 2011 by the Physical Education faculty, the RPDS P.E. program encourages health and fitness for students and their families.

The Daily’s Riverside Kids Duathlon & Tot Trot is open to ALL participants and their families (participation is open to the Jacksonville community and beyond).

Through the addition of the Daily’s Riverside Kids Duathlon & Tot Trot, we hope more children in Jacksonville and the surrounding area will be exposed to the lifelong benefits of being fit for life through healthy eating habits, daily exercise, hard work and determination.

The duathlon (run, bike, run), for children ages 5 – 15, begins at RPDS, with the route taking participants along the beautiful and scenic streets of historic Riverside.

The Tot Trot will take place on the RPDS track and is for children ages 6 and under.

Both races conclude on the RPDS campus with a celebratory festival, complete with child-friendly activities such as inflatables, face painters and much more!

After the event concludes, spend the day exploring all that Riverside has to offer – The Riverside Arts Market, The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens, delicious restaurants and more!

Safe Course:

Providing a safe race course is our first and foremost concern. With many children racing at one-time and in close proximity, there is bound to be a scraped knee or elbow. However, we have gone to great lengths to ensure that the race route is as safe as possible. The route we have chosen has little traffic flow and will be monitored by police, volunteers and trained professionals. 1st Place Sports will provide full race management and timing, including course setup and consultation on the best safety measures.
