TRIATHLONS & SPECIAL EVENTS
Health and wellness are about getting out there, meeting people, participating in activities, and challenging ourselves. Events that everyone can participate in are a great way to get people together and challenge ourselves personally.
Altru Family YMCA Annual Fall Indoor Triathlon
Start your fall off right with an indoor adventure! Swim, bike and run/walk in the comfort of the indoors. You can seriously push yourself or take it at a slower pace, or somewhere in-between. This event is also a great first-time triathlon.
How does it work?
The race is conducted in waves of 5 people. You will be with the same wave (group) during all three events. Waves start every 25 minutes.
First you will swim or walk laps in the pool for 10-15 minutes while a Y volunteer on-deck counts your laps. If you are not a strong swimmer that’s ok – you can use any stroke, kick with a kickboard, or water walk. Aqua belts are also available to use while training and during the event.
Next, you’ll go to the locker room and change (you’ll have at least 15 minutes) and head to the treadmill and complete a 10-20 minute walk or run. A volunteer will be stationed in the Fitness Center to help with runners/walkers.
Finally, you will head down to the mini gym. You’ll ride as a group for 10-20 minutes, pedaling at the pace you feel comfortable with. Your mileage will be tracked on the bike’s computer and will be recorded.
Top finishers are decided by a percentage conversion of the total number of laps and miles per competitor.
