INDOOR TRIATHLON EVENT HISTORY: Beginning in January 2009, the Oshkosh YMCA has hosted Indoor Triathlons at our Downtown and 20th Avenue locations. Each event is run in a similar format with each discipline (swim, bike & run) having set start and finish times for each wave. Using this format allows both the beginner and the more experienced triathlete to participate at their desired level - and simultaneously! The finishing order is calculated by the total accumulated distance over the three events and is scored by age and gender. Teams of two or three participants are also welcomed to participate. Teams compete against other teams only.
Past participants have ranged in age from 10 to 78 years young and have come from Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin. Our events are open to anyone age 10 and up.
EVENT DETAILS & THE FUTURE:
The events from 2009 through Winter 2014 went as follows:
- 10 minute swim
- 10 minute transition
- 20 minute cycle
- 5 minute transition
- 15 minute run
As always, constant movement during the event times is not required. The time for each event is available to you but you may stop to take a rest, etc. if required.
