The “Y Tri” is next up, with the 9th annual Westside Family 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. Overall, age group, and relay awards. Volunteers provided by the Westside Y, with proceeds going to the YMCA’s Save a Life program. Expected participation--225
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
