Named Minnesota’s 2017 “Favorite Race of the Year” by triathletes, the YWCA Women’s Tri consistently pulls over 1,000 women in every year from hundreds of first-timers to the state’s elite.
The YWCA Women’s Triathlon starts with a swim in popular Lake Nokomis, bikes the parkway roads along the bluffs of the Mississippi river and finishes with a run on the paths around Lake Nokomis. Two distance options include the Sprint (500yd swim/15.5mi bike/5K run) and the SuperSprint (200yd swim/7.3mi bike/1mi run).
Unique elements include free training plan, free clinics, training classes, “buddy” waves, family and first-timer awards, novice swim caps, “noodle” swimmers, the ever-popular “Friends and Family Finish Zone” and a green tradition that boasts a very low waste rate (94% of waste is diverted to compost and recycling).
