Y Not Tri the Hat 2010

By June 22, 2010News

And we’re off! Laconic designed the official poster for the 2010 YMCA Medicine Hat Family Triathlon. We couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. We think Y Not Tri the Hat is a great event and hope you will check it out, regardless of your athletic abilities.

Event Details:

On Sunday May 30, 2010 the Medicine Hat Family YMCA is proud to present the 4th annual Y Not Tri the Hat Sprint & Super Sprint Triathlon! Last year this event had a fantastic turn out and the YMCA is looking forward to even better things this year.

The Sprint Distance: 500m swim, 20km bike, and 5km run.

The Super Sprint: 300m swim, 10km bike ride, and finishing up with a 2.5km run. This new distance event is perfect for individuals looking to experience their first triathlon event, or younger racers looking to give the sport of triathlon a try! Both races can be run as an individual, or by a team of 2 or 3 members.

Family Fun Challenge:

In this abridged event, children as young as 4 years old will be allowed to compete in the three triathlon disiplines of swiming, biking and running with a 50 meter swim, bike track that loops around the Medicine Hat Arena and run course leading out from the YMCA towards Athletic Park. This event will give children the chance to compete alongside their parents and the opportunity to call themselves a real triathlete! Registration for the Family Fun Challenge is only $10 for a YMCA member or $15 for a Non-Member!
