Tri for the Y Triathlon

On May 22, 2010, the Cumberland County YMCA will host their inaugural ‘Tri for the Y’ Triathlon.

This triathlon will take place in Freeport, at the Casco Bay branch of the Cumberland County YMCA.  This event will be a sprint triathlon consisting of:

  • 325-yard pool swim
  • 12-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.  They encourage families to participate so they are allowing ages 12 and up at this event. They will also offer babysitting for those who cannot participate on a first come first serve basis.

The Y will also be offering a slate of pre-event training clinics, designed to encourage first-time triathletes to participate.

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, they turn no one away because of an inability to pay.

The money raised at this event will go toward our financial assistance program.  In total, the YMCA provided more than $560,000 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 this event will ensure that they continue to make our programs and services accessible to all.

In addition to supporting a healthy community, your participation in this event will provide you with an enjoyable day of family fun!
