Y-Not Triathlon and Y-Not Swim 

Saturday, July 12

Our local YMCAs have long been part of many Treasure Valley citizens' daily efforts to live a healthy lifestyle. But the organization also does a great job of creating one-off events.

The Y-Not Tri(athlon) is one such event. It's a standard race in that it has swim, bike and run legs but different from a typical triathlon in that it's open to kids and adults alike--ages 5 and older welcome--and participants can choose the distance and category that works best for them, making Y-Tri for tri-athletes in any stage from I-tried-once-but-didn't-finish to I-enter-and-win-every-triathlon-I-can.

And new this year is Y-Not Swim, a 1K or 2K swim in Quinn's Pond, that starts at the dock and ends near Idaho River Sports. Registration is open now (visit ymcatvidaho.org), packet pick-up is at Idaho River Sports, 601 Whitewater Park Blvd., July 11-12.
