About This Activity

Whether you are a novice or an accomplished athlete…this is your year to become a Triathlete OR a Duathlete!

This is an "Old School" event! Before Tri-bikes existed, a triathlon was raced on road bikes or street bikes or hybrid bikes. So, leave your fancy Tri-bike at home!  And bring your spring-trainer beater-road bike or your hybrid-bike or your cyclocross bike or your mountain bike! This is NOT for nice bikes. The bike portion is on some paved roads but mostly compressed dirt, so leave your skinny tires at home ! Come have fun at this throwback event !

Both triathlon and duathlon occur simultaneously.

And, the best part of this great event is that all proceeds go to help support and develop the Youth Activities and Programs at The Bangor YMCA. The Y changes lives for the children, youth, families, seniors, and community at large through their mission of youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. The main purpose is to raise money for youth-programs at The Bangor YMCA to support children without the financial resources to attend the Y's Early Childhood Education Program, Y-Works Before & After School Care, Day Camp, Sleep Away Camp and MORE
