Woodruff Family YMCA Sprint Triathlon registration

MILFORD--Sponsored by The Salvatore Law Firm the YMCA will host its third annual sprint triathlon, dubbed The “Y” Tri on May 20. The sprint will include the traditional three full triathlon events, but at shorter distances: a 300-yard swim (at the Woodruff YMCA facility), followed by a 10-mike bike race and finishing with a 3 mile run.

This early season pool triathlon is a great way to dive into the triathlon season. Past participants rave about the "Y" Tri. Find out for yourself why the "Y" Tri is a wonderful way to kick off your triathlon season. The swim is up and down 6 lanes of the pool for a total of 300 yards. The bike course is a single loop. The run is out and back with the finish under the giant F.I.R.M arch.

Competitors can sign up as individuals ($70) or as teams ($80). Individuals or teams interested in participating may go online to to register.
