LINCOLN, Neb. — The Fallbrook YMCA will be hosting its 4th Annual Youth Triathlon on Monday, September 7 in support of the YMCA Annual Campaign-Strong Kids.
“This event is a great way to give the kids a taste of the triathlon setting in a fun and non-competitive environment,” commented Kelly Fink, Health and Wellness Director for the Fallbrook YMCA. “It’s a great opportunity to promote fitness and activity while also giving back to a great cause.”
The Youth Triathlon route will start and end at the Fallbrook YMCA with the race route throughout the Fallbrook neighborhood. The race consists of a swim, bike and run with designated distances based on age. Pre-registration is encouraged with the early registration deadline being August 26. Registrations will be accepted after the deadline, but the availability of t-shirts on the day of the race will not be guaranteed. The event is open to kids ages 5 and up. All skill levels are encouraged to participate in this fun, untimed event. The registration fee is $20 per participant and will include t-shirts for all those registered prior to August 26.
Registration information and a course map can be found at ymcalincoln.org/events/youth-triathlon. Questions can also be asked at the Fallbrook YMCA or by calling 402-323-6444.
All proceeds from the event will go to the YMCA Annual Campaign-Strong Kids which provides youth programming and services for children in need who would otherwise not be able to participate due to financial limitations.
