Sun. June 2, 8am at the
Salem Family YMCA
When many people think of triathlons—events that combine swimming, bicycling, and running—they imagine Ironman contests of strength and endurance that are only possible for super buff, mega athletes. At the Y, we believe that everyone should have a chance to TRI, that’s why we started the Salem Sprint Triathlon. Our Sprint Tri is about a quarter of the size of a full-size Tri and is rewarding to both novices and seasoned athletes.
This June, the Salem Family YMCA proudly presents their 3rd annual Sprint Triathlon. Located just west of Roanoke in Salem, VA, this race is easy to get to from anywhere in the Shenandoah Valley.
The race begins in the Y’s indoor pool with a 300-yard snake swim and is followed by a rolling and scenic 15K bike course. After taking in the scenery on the bike athletes will get to explore Salem with an 2 loop 5K run course. All of this is followed up with great post race food and hospitality you will only find at the YMCA.
The Salem Sprint Tri is a USA Triathlon sanctioned event and features special award categories for family and school relay teams. This event is limited to the first 500 registrations. Awards go to the Top 3 in each of the following categories:
