Lake Hickory Triathlon is put on by the Alexander County Family YMCA. This will be the 6th year for the event. The participation numbers have increased every year. Given the shorter swim, it is great for beginner triathletes to ease into open water swim triathlons.
This event benefits the Alexander County Family YMCA’s Financial Assistance Program. The YMCA believes that everyone in the community should have the opportunity to benefit from YMCA programs and services. The YMCA is a community-based nonprofit with the mission to “Help people reach their God-given potential in spirit, mind and body”.
