Problem of the Week
Problem A
Tri Kids Race

A triathlon is a race that has three components. Racers first complete a swimming component, then they complete a biking component, and finally they complete a running component.

In the Tri Kids race, the racers first swim \(100\) m. They then travel \(25\) m to the bicycle area. The racers then ride their bike in a \(3\) km long loop back to the bicycle area. The bicycle area is right beside the track. The racers then run \(3\) laps of the track to finish the race. One lap of the track is \(400\) m.

In the Tri Kids race, what is the total distance the racers have to cover, from start to finish?
