Pieathlon- YMCA Sprint Triathlon

Saturday, May 19, 2018

The Pieathlon is a great beginner level sprint triathlon, that features a 400m indoor swim, 12 mile bike ride, and 3 mile run. This event spotlights the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and a community of meaningful relationships for those going through difficult life challenges, such as cancer. The event spotlights Y members who have become testaments. The Pieathon was founded by Dave Milburn in an effort to honor his wife Penny's cancer survivor-ship story. She found support through their Ragbrai friends as she won her battle. The friends had a tradition of eating pie together at the end of Ragbrai, signifying a journey well done. A youth triathlon will take place after all sprint triathlon athletes complete swimming. The youth triathlon will consist of a 200 yard swim, 3 mile bike, and 1 mile run. The youth tri will start 10 min. after the last adult sprint tri swimmer finishes. Register at the Waukee Family YMCA , by phone at 987-9996 with a credit card or via the website.
