Indoor Triathlon ~ Dash for Cash
The Downtown YMCA is holding its Annual Indoor Triathlon on March 2, 2013. Sign up today because only the first 60 people who register will get to participate. There will be no registration on the day of the event.
As the name suggests the event is broken down into three events: a 15 minute swim, a 20 minute bike and a 15 minute run.
Awards will be given based on the distance covered in the allotted time. There will be a men’s and a women’s division and the top three contestants in both divisions will receive a cash prize.
1st prize is $100
2nd prize is $50
3rd prize is $25
Everyone who participates will receive a high quality commemorative item to take home from the event.
Entrance fee is $35 for YMCA members and $40 for non-members. A portion of every entry fee will be used to support the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign.
