Your child can still participate in the first-ever Duathlon at the Door County YMCA this Saturday. Aquatics Director Nicole Shepard says the competition involves a swim of 100 to 500 yards and a run ranging from .59 miles to 2.36 miles, depending on age. She shares details about the swim/run Duathlon that starts at 8 am on Saturday.
The event is open to youth five to 18 years old. All participants receive a T-shirt with the top three finishers from each age group awarded a custom swim cap. Shepard notes that 20 kids have registered already, and they hope to have at least 50 children participate in the inaugural Duathlon at the Sturgeon Bay YMCA. You can register for the event by calling the YMCA or logging on to their website.
