Whether this is your 50th Sprint Triathlon or Sprint Duathlon, or your very first, the Bangor YMCA wants you to GIVE OUR SPRINT TRIATHLON & DUATHLON A TRY! Registered Athletes will receive access to our Fitness Center, Weight Room, Two Swimming Pools, and Fitness Classes!
This is an “Old School” event! Before Tri-bikes existed, a triathlon was raced on road bikes or street bikes or hybrid bikes. So, leave your fancy Tri-bike at home! And bring your spring-trainer beater-road bike or your hybrid-bike or your cyclocross bike or your mountain bike! This is NOT for nice bikes. The bike portion is on some paved roads but mostly compressed dirt, so leave your skinny tires at home! Come have fun at this throwback event!
Not only are we celebrating our 5th Anniversary at The Bangor YMCA Wilderness Center at Camp Jordan, giving our Sprint Triathlon an “Old School” nod to the days before Tri-Bikes existed, BUT we will will also be adding a SPRINT DUATHLON! Both our Sprint Triathlon and Sprint Duathlon will run simultaneously.
Be a part of the Tri for the Y, and not only will you feel incredible when you hit the finish line, but you will feel incredible knowing that your involvement and pledges are helping children and teens be able to go to camp this summer, participate in adventure and leadership programs that will change their lives, and be in a safe, nurturing, and loving environment. You will make the difference in the lives of so many people who are deserving of these opportunities. The Y ensures that everyone, regardless of age, income, or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive. Your desire to be an Athlete and participate in our Tri for the Y helps make this happen.
