Westside Y TriJuly 12th, 2014Westside YMCA, Knoxville TNRace start: TBA
Day of race registrants not guaranteed a commemorative event shirt.
This is not a USAT sacntioned event, but athletes still need to pick up their own packets for insurance purposes. But one member of a relay can pick up for the entire team.
The Y Tri is next up in the Grand Prix series, with the Family Westside YMCA in Knoxville the spectator and family friendly venue. This west Knoxville favorite is a great beginner race with a short 200 yard swim, two lap 7 mile ride through the famous West Hills neighborhood, and flat 4k run on the West Hills greenway. Also, the third leg of the Fleet Feet Grand Prix Sprint series. Post ride food provided by the Fresh Market. Volunteers provided by the YMCA, with race proceeds going to the YMCA “Save a Life” program. Expected participation—250.
Pool swim, with time trial start--swimmers start one at a time every 5 seconds, with the fastest swimmers starting first. Participants will swim up one lane, down another, up the next and continuing on as they traverse the pool for 200 yards
A two lap course though the West Hills neighborhood offers a surprisingly hilly challenge. Knoxville Police traffic control and excellent volunteer support at every turn!
The run here is relatively flat and mostly shaded along the West Hills Greenway
