YMCA Winter Indoor Triathlon set for March 6

Special to Devils Lake Journal

Grand Forks – The Altru Family YMCA annual Indoor Triathlon is scheduled for Saturday, March 6.

Participants will swim, bike and run in the comfort of the indoors. The event kicks off at 9 a.m. with the first wave of 5 people: starting with a 15 minute swim in the YMCA pool, followed by a 20-minute indoor cycling session and a 20-minute run or walk on a treadmill. Waves will start every 25 minutes. Laps will be counted in all events and later tallied with a percentage conversion to determine the top finishers.
