Y Kids Triathlon Set for August 6


kids tri R1The 9th annual Kids Triathlon at the Y will be held on Sunday morning, August 6. The popular triathlon continues to attract hundreds of area participants to the kid-friendly triathlon course that encourages youth of all abilities to “compete to complete.” Young athletes are encouraged to train through the summer, set personal goals and participate on August 6 to achieve their own personal goals. Medals are awarded to all participants who finish the race.

The event is organized by staff and volunteers of Central Bucks Family YMCA and all proceeds from the triathlon benefit the Y’s Annual Campaign, which ensures that individuals, youth, and families can participate in Y programs regardless of their ability to pay. Sponsors for the race include Penn Community Bank, Doylestown Health, GMG Insurance, Adams Orthodontics and JJS Consulting.
