The Badin Lake Triathlon provides a perfect opportunity for all fitness levels to get involved in a sprint triathlon. Participants will swim a 750 yard open water swim in Badin Lake, bike a 14 miles through rolling country roads of Stanly County, and run a 5K through historic Badin, NC.
Individuals will have the opportunity to compete in age group, Athena, or Clydesdale Divisions. Athletes competing in the Athena division must be female weighing 160 pounds or more. Athletes in the Clydesdale division must be male weighing 220 pounds or more.
The Relay Team Challenge encourages everyone in the community to get active and fit while having fun! It's a perfect way to get involved in the Badin Lake Triathlon without taking on all of the events. Three-man teams consist of one swimmer, one cyclist, and one runner. Two-man teams are welcome where one member of the team completes two of the legs. Teams can be All Male, All Female, or Coed.
The YMCA Challenge encourages Y members from Ys across the region to compete in the Badin Lake Triathlon. Trophies will be provided to the Y with the Fastest Male, Fastest Female, and Fastest Relay Team.
Awards to be given to Overall, Age Group, Athena, Clydesdale, and Team Category winners.
All proceeds from the Badin Lake Triathlon support the YMCA Strong Communities Fund which funds the six signature programs of the Stanly County Family YMCA.
