Race Preview: 7th annual Sherwood YMCA Family Triathlon

Maybe you’ve been thinking about trying a triathlon, but are intimidated by open water swims. Or maybe you love triathlons and would like to introduce your kids to them. Or maybe you just want to have fun on a Saturday morning. The Sherwood YMCA has the solution to all those situations. The 7th annual Sherwood YMCA Family Triathlon takes place on Saturday, August 16th, 2014.

The triathlon starts with a swim in the pool, followed by a bike ride on neighborhood streets, and ends with a quick run. There are two distances to choose from: the All Star Course is a 100 yard swim/5M bike/2M run, while the Rookie Course is a 50 yard swim/2M bike/½ mile run. After completing your race, stay for the free BBQ and check out the YMCA during its open house.
