11th Annual Y-TRI March 20, 2011


ON SUNDAY MARCH 20, 2011, at the 11th annual Y-TRI, The Farmington YMCA, F.A.S.T. and the Sunrise Runners will be offering an opportunity for the entire family to participate anytime in an indoor triathlon from 7AM to 11AM. The Y-TRI is specifically adapted to encourage family participation by appealing to both the novice who wants to compete in a multi-sport event and to challenge the seasoned triathlete to assess their pre-season conditioning. The Y-TRI 2011 will also offer a "KIDS TRI" designed and specifically formulated for children between 7 - 11 yrs.

Each athlete will choose any combination of three events (swim, bike, run or elliptical) and any combination of time for each event (10, 15 or 20 min). Y-TRI 2011 has something for the entire family and the proceeds directly benefit the local community through the YMCA's "Strong Kids" program.

Applications are available in PDF format here:  Application for the Y- Tri

FAST at the Races 11/29/10

Congratulations to Amy Gluck for her Ironman Cozumel finish on Saturday. If
my rusty Spanish is correct, Amy finished 3rd in her age group. Way to go
Amy! I hope you get some rest after your 3rd Ironman race this year.

Earlier this month:
Cleveland Fall Classic Half Marathon on November 21:

Yoshiko Tischler finished 6th in her age group
Mark Squires finished 7th in his age group

I know there were many Turkey Trotters as well, so great job to all who got
off the couch to run!

Great job FAST!
