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.
THE NEXT RACE:
The Oshkosh YMCA, the YMCA of the Fox Cities and the Green Bay YMCA have partnered up to present The 2015 Northeast Wisconsin Regional Indoor Triathlon Series. Come and test your fitness or just do it for fun. The Oshkosh YMCA's race will be at the 20th Avenue location on Saturday January 17, 2015 and will start at 12 Noon. This series is open to ages 8 and up with a minimum height of 4'6" (52 inches) to participate. Final details on age groups and fees will be released in late Fall 2014.
