YMCA Kid's Duathlon (Wilmington, NC)

Sat August 15 - Sat August 22 Wilmington, NC 28403 US Directions
Nir Family YMCA
2710 Mar
Wilmington, NC US 28403

This is the YMCA of Southeastern North Carolina's first ever Kid's DUATHLON event! Due to state CDC guidelines we decided that it would be safer for our kids, families, staff and volunteers to host two different options for our YMCA kids event this summer!

Option 1: In-person Duathlon (swim/run) at the Nir Family YMCA on Saturday, August 15th from 7am-9am. MAX 50 PARTICIPANTS.

Option 2: Virtual Duathlon (run/bike) ANYWHERE, ANYTIME from August 15th-August 22nd.

Our main focus of these two options is to get kids and families active outdoors and inspire our community to be healthy and fit together while keeping everyone as safe as possible. All proceeds benefit youth programs of the Nir Family YMCA to provide scholarships!

Our distances for each age group are as followed (depending on your 2 events):

age 5-6:  swim 25yd, bike 1 mile, run 0.5 mile
age 7-8:  swim 50 yd, bike 2 miles, run 0.5 mile
age 9-10:  swim 100 yd, bike 2 miles, run 1 mile
age 11-13:  swim 200 yd, bike 3 miles, run 2 miles


What does it cost? $25
Who can participate? Kids ages 5-13

Register before August 4th to guarantee a T-shirt!

No awards and no chip timing this year. We will do our best with manual timing but there may be errors!
