Saturday, July 14, 2018, Tri! Ballantyne enters its 9th year at the Morrison Family YMCA and this year is sure to attract many new faces to multisport training and racing. After important feedback and to ensure that the YMCA continues to provide the safest routes and memorable multisport race day experiences for all, 2018 brings about change, excitement, and inclusion. Now labeled a SUPERSPRINT TRI!, adults and kids ages 10 years and older will swim 150 yards, bike a 4 mile loop, and run a 2k. For those looking for a more intense Supersprint Tri! challenge, individuals and relay teams can repeat this swim-bike-run twice at no additional cost!
As Tri! Ballantyne participants flutter kick, pedal, and sprint along the Morrison Family YMCA campus, he/she will be helping a child in need have the opportunity to play, learn and grow in a safe and thriving environment. With the community’s support in 2017, Tri! Ballantyne raised over $50,000 in support of the YMCA Annual Campaign, providing hundreds of children the opportunity to participate in enriching, life changing YMCA programs like preschool, after school, summer camp and sports.
All Tri! Ballantyne finishers will receive a custom die-cast finisher medal after crossing the bubble-filled finish line near the Bojangles’ Pavilion. Triathletes can celebrate their accomplishment with family and friends during our awards ceremony while enjoying local eats, music, fun door prizes and the return of our widely popular hill slip 'n' slide!
