Posted: 07/03/2012 at 12:05 pm
The triathlon will offer a kayak option along with the swimming leg of the race. Adults (16 and over) will swim 200 yards, bike (or kayak) 10 miles and run two-and-a-half miles. Students 12-15 years old will swim 100 yards, bike three miles and run half a mile. Children under age 12 will swim 50 yards, biking and running the same distances as 12-15 year olds. The swim portion will take place in the Michiana Family YMCA pool and the kayak option (adults only) will be in the St. Joseph River. The run course is a loop on the Riverwalk between the Michiana Family YMCA and Howard Park.
Fees are $40 per adult and $20 per youth. Register before Aug. 1 to avoid late fees. Proceeds will be divided equally among the three nonprofits.
