Hardin County YMCA Beginners Super Sprint Triathlon
Saturday, August 3rd , 2013 8:00 AM (Pre-Race Meeting at 7:30 AM)
Location: Hardin County YMCA in Kenton
The Super Sprint Triathlon will consist of:
Swim: 250 Yard (5 laps) in an outdoor pool with maximum depth of 5 feet. (No floatation devices allowed)
Bike: 6 miles on closed county roads
Run: 1.5 mile run on closed county roads
Race Specifics: The race will begin with wave swimming. 12 people will start their swim (2 per race lane) and once finished, the next wave will begin. There will not be any time chips, so the only time that will be shown will be your completion time.
Once the swim is completed, the participants will move into the transition area and start the bike ride. Once the bike ride is finished, the participants will return to the SAME transition area and begin their run. The transition area and the finish line are in the same location, so everything will be in close proximity.
Goal: This will be a beginners ONLY triathlon for those who have always wanted to try a triathlon but
were fearful of the lengths. ONLY the completion time will be kept (no split times), and
ALL finishers will receive a medal. There will NOT be individual medals given. We are promoting
better health and want all participants to reach that goal.
Race Registration and Fees: All Participants: $30.00
-MUST BE PRE-REGISTERED. NO walk ups!
-Registration is only open to the FIRST 48 participants.
Registration Includes: A t-shirt, finishers medal, and refreshments. Also, the YMCA will hold
several Pre-race workouts in the weeks prior to the triathlon. These classes will help
first time triathletes to learn more about how to complete the race and offer
training tips. The classes are offered to registered entrants only.
