Experience what it’s like to participate in a triathlon in the comfort of your YMCA! Here’s your chance to test your fitness skills and compete against yourself and others in your age group at the PNC YMCA Sprint Triathlon! It doesn’t matter how skilled a swimmer, cyclist, or runner you are — this is a great opportunity for you to try something new and add a much-needed “kick” to your workouts! If you don’t know how to swim, no worries— you can enter the Sprint Duathlon!
All proceeds benefit our YMCA Annual Campaign and fund programs to help close the achievement gap, eliminate health disparities, and provide food security and aid to families in our Pittsburgh community!
