Pat Jones YMCA First Annual Outdoor Sprint Triathlon
The Pat Jones YMCA will hold its first outdoor Sprint Triathlon Saturday, April 22, 2023, after 15
successful indoor Triathlons since 2007.
Pat Jones has successfully held 15 Indoor Triathlons since 2007. This year we will hold our first
Outdoor Sprint Tri as we transition from indoor to outdoor triathlons. We anticipate it to be a
successful event and a wonderful way to engage with the Springfield community.
Sprint triathlons are short-distance triathlons, consisting of a 750-meter swim, a 20k bike ride, and
a 5k run. This is half the distance of an Olympic triathlon and less than a quarter of the distance
of the Ironman. The shorter distances have made sprint triathlons increasingly popular and are
ideal for beginner or novice athletes.
We have a beautiful bike and run course in store for a wonderful day of competition, community,
and fun. Join us for the First Annual Pat Jones Sprint Triathlon.
For those who may want an edge in the competition, there will be a 6-week Triathlon Training at Pat Jones YMCA Tuesdays & Thursdays beginning March 14-April 20, 2023.
