Mark your calendars for the 2014 Greendale Triathlon – Sunday June 1st, 2014!
Come join us at the Greendale YMCA in Worcester, MA and participate in a sprint-distance Triathlon or a Kids Triathlon and Health & Wellness Expo on Sunday June 1, 2014!
The Triathlon kicks off the day’s events. Participants will have the option of either swimming 1/2 mile OR kayaking/SUPing about 2 miles for the first leg in Indian Lake in Worcester, MA. Then everyone bikes a 16.5 mile scenic course into Holden. The run through area neighborhoods is a shorter 2.5 miles, but we promise it will feel long enough!
The Kids Triathlon course will be based on age. All kids will complete a pool swim, bike on roads closed to traffic, and run through the same finish line chute as the adults! The 6-10 year olds will swim 50 yards, bike 1 mile, and run just over 1/4 mile. The 11-15 year olds will do double the distances. The Kids Triathlon is a participatory event – the only timing will be overall times.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Greendale YMCA.
