LAKE WALES FAMILY YMCA PLANS FEBRUARY LAZY TRIATHLON
Lake Wales, FL – Looking for motivation to keep moving forward with your new year’s fitness goals? The Lake Wales Family YMCA may have your answer!
The 2016 Lazy Triathlon will take place Feb. 1 through Feb. 29 and is open to Y members and non-members.
Participants select a level – bronze, silver, gold, or Ironman – and keep a tally all month of how many miles they log in swimming, cycling and running/walking. At the end of the triathlon, all participants will be recognized at a closing celebration on March 8 at 6 p.m. with a certificate and a shirt.
Participants can compete individually or as part of a three-person team. Additionally, those who want to compete individually without the swim can do a duathlon, adding additional cycling and running/walking miles to compensate for not swimming. Activities can be done at the YMCA, but do not have to be. Fitness classes at the YMCA count for two running/walking miles. Group cycle classes count for 16 miles. The YMCA pool is heated and is available for all participants.
Cost is $15 for YMCA members and $30 for non-members, and includes full access to YMCA facilities and classes for the month of February. Team registration is $60. All proceeds benefit the YMCA Annual Campaign, which assists low-income community members in gaining access to the YMCA’s facilities and programs.
