Why Participate in an Indoor USATri60 Event?

After 60 minutes (yes, only 1 hour…not including the built in transitions) all participants will be able to call themselves triathletes.  They will also have the option to get an eight (8) week self- training plan provided by a USA Triathlon Certified Coach or an eight (8) week instructor-led training program by a YMCA staff member that has completed the Multisport Education Program.  And let’s not forget that stellar goodie bag (drawstring backpacks, swim caps, finisher t-shirts, and finisher medals to be exact!)  But why stop there?  As an added benefit of completing their USATri60 event, all participants will get a list of triathlons in their area and possible discounts into those local triathlons (* based on RD participation).  If our conversations with athletes is true, after this indoor triathlon they will be hooked and will want to challenge themselves further to living that healthy lifestyle.
