Your child can participate in the first-ever Duathlon at the Door County YMCA in August. Aquatics Director Nicole Shepard says the new event will include a feature swim in the Carla and Ellsworth Peterson Aquatics Center and laps around the trail in Peterson Park just north of the YMCA. She shares the details of how some members of the YMCA swim team use the competition to stay sharp in the offseason.
The Door County Duathlon has five age groups that range from five to 18 years old and is open to the public with an entry fee of $20, which includes a free t-shirt. The length of the swim and run is based on the age categories. You can find more details on the August 6th Duathlon and registration information here.
