2013 Tri for the Y Sprint Triathlon:
The Tri for the Y Triathlon will be a sprint triathlon consisting of:
- 325-yard pool swim
- 13-mile bike ride
- 3 mile run
Tri for the Y is intended to encourage participation by people with a variety of fitness levels and competitive experiences.
We encourage families to participate so we are allowing ages 12 and up at this event.
The swim will take place in the Casco Bay YMCA pool. The length of the swim is 325 yards or 13 lengths of the pool.
This pool has 8 lanes and there will be two people swimming in each lane.
Each swimmer will stay on their own side of the lane to complete their distance.
There will be approximately 15 waves. The waves will be put together base on individual swim times for the 325 yards.
Each swimmer must submit their swim time for the 325 yards on their registration.
The bike course consists of 13 miles out and back through scenic South Freeport.
These country roads are low traffic roads with rolling hills and some big climbs.
On race day the course will be well marked and supported with plenty of volunteers.
There will be no aid station on the course, and you are responsible for bringing your own water for the bike portion of the race.
We will have bike support if you need help on race day.
There will be some challenging hills for first time triathletes.
Please be prepared.
We encourage you to meet some friends at the Casco Bay YMCA in Freeport and ride the course together prior to the race.
Maps are available at the front desk.
This is a 3-mile course that is fairly flat with one long slow climb.
It will take you to through a quiet South Freeport neighborhood.
There will be aid stations at mile 1 and at mile 2.
Who Benefits From These Events?
The Cumberland County YMCA is committed to offering programs and services to the community that promote a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all, regardless of ability to pay. To that end, we turn no one away because of an inability to pay.
The money raised at these events will go toward our financial assistance program. In total, the YMCA provided more than $600,000 in financial assistance to members of our community last year. 1 in 3 members of the Y received some form of financial assistance in the past year. The proceeds from these events will ensure that we continue to make our programs and services accessible to all.
In addition to supporting a healthy community, your participation in these events will provide you with an enjoyable day of family fun! We look forward to seeing you on race day!
