Lake Norman YMCA Sprint Triathlon

Saturday, August 23, 2014

Join us for one of the most popular races on the triathlon circuit. The Lake Norman YMCA Spring Triathlon is the branch's largest fundraiser helping build a stronger community through the Lake Norman YMCA Community Support Campaign. More than 700 participants will swim, bike and run their way around the Davidson/Cornelius area.

The Lake Norman YMCA Sprint Triathlon gives everyone motivation to compete against the clock or themselves. Hosted at one of the few YMCAs located on a waterfront and part of the competitive North Carolina Triathlon Series, the event is one of the most popular events on the circuit drawing over 900 athletes from around the Atlantic Coast and Southeast regions.   


Most importantly, the Lake Norman YMCA Sprint Triathlon gives children and adults the chance to overcome physical disabilities in the Adaptive Water Ski Program. In partnership with the Carolinas Healthcare Systems Adaptive Sports and Adventures Program, the program is the only of its kind in North Carolina. Participants not only learn to ski, but learn to face and overcome their challenges. All proceeds from the event support the Lake Norman YMCA Annual Campaign, enabling the Y to continue helping our adaptive water skiers hold on to hope.

In addition to our relay teams, the Lake Norman Triathlon now includes three new team opportunities. Now your company, triathlon group or YMCA can challenge other groups in the same category, motivate each other to finish, and work together to make a difference for kids and adults with specials needs. Within each group, there are both competitive and non-competitive divisions. Team members will also be entered as individual event participants and be eligible for individual prizes.

Best of all – team registration is free! At the Y, we believe we make a greater impact when we work together so we encourage you to get your team together today. Even if you have already signed up, you can still add or join a team. Winning teams will be announced and presented with a prize immediately following the event.

Team Categories:

1. Corporate – Any for-profit or non-profit organization.
2. Triathlon Groups – Any triathlon club or training group.
3. YMCA – YMCA members can represent their branches and compete against other branches.
