For many athletic kids, the summer is their off-season. Lots of youth sports teams take a break while school is out. But if you have kids who want to keep participating in sports and other athletic events, there’s a great option coming up early in June. Sign up your child for the Goldsboro YMCA Youth Triathlon.
About the YMCA Youth Triathlon
This event is so much fun for the whole family. This is the fourth year the Goldsboro Family YMCA has hosted it, and it’s always a huge success.
This year, the YMCA Youth Triathlon will be on Saturday, June 8 starting at 7:30 a.m. Kids will be broken down into races based on their ages. All participants will have a swimming, biking, and running race, just like a full triathlon. The distance of the race will be adjusted for each age group. Here are the categories.
- Kids ages 6 to 9 – This group will have a 25-yard swim, a 1-mile bike ride, and a 1/2-mile run.
- Kids ages 10-12 – This group will swim 50 yards, ride their bike 2 miles, and run 1 mile.
- Kids ages 13-17 – The oldest age group will compete in a 75-yard swim, a 5K bike ride, and a 2-mile run.

The cost to register for the YMCA Youth Triathlon is $35, and you can sign up now. Every participant needs to have a bike, a helmet, and running shoes to take part in the event. There will be lifeguards present for the swimming part of the race, and the biking and running parts will take place either in or around the Goldsboro Family YMCA.
This event is perfect for kids who want to stay active. The whole race is timed, and all finishers will receive a race medal.
On race day, be sure you get there early to pick up your packet. You can also go by the YMCA to pick it up on Friday, June 7, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. That way your child will be ready to race when things kick off at 7:30 a.m. on June 8.
Last year, more than 42 participants finished the race. Then there was a pool party in the afternoon for everyone. This is such a fun way to get the whole family out and active during the summer. Be sure to sign up now and reserve your spot at this exciting race!
