Triathlon Register NowTRI! BALLANTYNE

Swim, Bike and Run / Walk for a child in need!

SponsorsDATE: Saturday, July 15, 2017
LOCATION: Morrison Family YMCA | 9405 Bryant Farms Road | Charlotte, NC 28277
RACE START TIME: 7:00 AM 

The 8th Annual Tri! Ballantyne marks the return of the outdoor triathlon for the adult division. The event is a community favorite and we’re excited that it’s back and better than ever. Adults and kids ages 10+ can participate individually or as a relay team. The 300 yard pool swim, 12.7 mile outdoor bike and 3.1 mile outdoor run is open to all levels and is a great stepping stone for the Lake Norman YMCA open water swim triathlon in August.

After crossing our new finish line, runners and fans enjoy food, music and entertainment at the post-race celebration. Plus, stick around and cheer for our young triathletes participating in the Preschool Kids Tri! (3-5 years) at 12:00PM* and Kids Tri! (6-14 years) at 1:00 PM*.

Tri! Ballantyne celebrates healthy competition while giving back to the community. The race benefits the YMCA Annual Campaign and kids in need. Your participation supports life-changing Y programs that inspire young potential and promote academic success.
