The triathlon is a sprint triathlon and is meant for beginners, but challenging enough for the well seasoned athlete. The event consists of a 400 yard pool swim, 20K bike ride and a 5K run. The bike course will travel through Trent Woods and the run will take you through the historic Ghent neighborhood.
Last year this event brought in 210 athletes from the Tri-county area as well as other states. And the age range of the participants last year ranged from 10 years to 74 years old. Food and beverages will be provided for all participants and volunteers.
The triathlon benefits the YMCA’s Scholarship Campaign.
