Why not try a tri?

Wednesday, July 3, 2013

Have you always dreamed of competing in a triathlon? If so, the Cassville Y "Not" Tri sprint triathlon is the event for you.

Slated for July 13 at the Cassville Aquatics Center, the sprint-dis- tance triathlon includes a 400-yard swim, a 15- mile bike and a three- mile run. Participants can compete individual- ly or as a team.

This is the seventh year in a row the Cass- ville YMCA has hosted the sprint triathlon, and each year, participation has grown.

The event will be- gin at 8 a.m. in waves based on divisions. Medals will be awarded to the top three male and female athletes in each age division. Door priz- es will also be awarded after the race.

The cost to enter the Y "Not" Tri is $35 per individual or $70 per team. An additional $5 is added to the entry fee for those who sign up on the day of the race.

Registration forms are available at both the Cassville and Monett YMCAs. For more in- formation, call Stacy at 417-235-8213 or email her at smckenzie@mon- ettymca.org.
