Join Our Inaugural Indoor Triathlon!
As a feature of FitFest 2013, we are hosting an indoor triathlon for the first time at Greater Cincinnati’s Central Parkway YMCA! We hope the event will continue and attain a life of its own over the years since it suits our mission and facility so well.
Teams of 1, 2, or 3 people will complete a 10-minute swim, 15-minute bike ride, and 15-minute run. Even if you don’t consider yourself an endurance athlete, you can definitely participate and have fun! You don’t need to complete all three legs of the swim, run, and biking race yourself…have a friend or two complete the portions with which you’re less comfortable.
The schedule should also accommodate most entrants. Each participant can complete their portion(s) of the event in any session. Teams need not be present all at once to enter.
There will be two sessions: lunch (11-1) and evening (5:30-7:30). During registration, you will indicate your preferred session and whether you would like an early or late heat within that time slot. We will try to honor those requests, but in case we cannot due to the number of entrants, please make sure your schedule is open for any start time during the two hour session for which you register!
- The swim, bike, and run will each be worth 100 points.
- Male and female with the greatest distance in each event will be awarded 100 points.
- Other participants will be awarded points based on their percentage of the winner’s distance.
- Final score is swim points + bike points + run points.
Joyce is the top female finisher on the bike, at 12.6 miles, and is awarded 100 points.
Sharon finished the bike at 10.3 miles, and is awarded points (10.3/12.6 = 0.817 x 100 = 81.7 points.
If Sharon received 92.6 points on the swim, 81.7 points on the bike, and was the top finisher on the run (so 100 points), her final score is 274.3 points.
