TRAIN THEM EARLY!
SAVE THE DATE: JUNE 24, 2017
Stay tuned for more information regarding our 2017 Youth Triathlon. Kids- go ahead and start training!
On Saturday June 25th, 2016 77 youth lined up their bicycles in the Y parking lot, got their swimming gear ready, and headed out on a race of a lifetime. For most, this was their very first event of this type. Their first time venturing into the world of triathlons. But also for most, certainly not their last.
The first annual Youth Triathlon was a huge success, packed with supporting family members, and allowed kids from ages 6-15 to experience something like never before in our area.
Broken into age groups, the 9 & under completed a 25 yard swim, 1 mile bike ride and 1/2 mile run. Ages 10-12 did a 50 yard swim, 2 mile bike ride and 1 mile run. Lastly, ages 13-15 years finished a 75 yard swim, 5K bike ride and 2 mile run.
Thankfully, a local triathlon group, the Trifectas, helped coordinate and organize race logistics, and we were honored to have them join us in hosting this new event.
