Open to ages 14 and up, the indoor/outdoor triathlon is based on time rather than distance – meaning you receive points for going further in a specific period of time, not going faster over a fixed distance. Participants are graded on a curve. The furthest distance in each category gets the most points (actual number is based on total participants), the shortest receives 1 point, and your “score” for the discipline is based on the points you achieve. All three disciplines count equally toward your final score. Therefore, your rank and score will not be determined until all participants have completed the event. The total event will be 85 minutes: 10 minutes in the pool, a 15-minute transition, 30 minutes on an indoor bike, a 10-minute transition, and 20 minutes running outside of the YMCA building. Transition times are fixed between events and do not count toward participants’ scores. The transition times are planned to allow safe progression to the next discipline.
