On July 25, 250 youth aged 5-14 participated in the Second Annual McGaw Y Youth Triathlon. Associate Executive Director of Youth Development Lori Siegel, also longtime aquatics director at the McGaw Y, said “The youth tri draws more kids … and challenges them to try something new.”

Bill Geiger, McGaw Y president and CEO, cheered participants across the finish line and announced, “You are now a triathlete.”

In the weeks prior to the event, 50 youth participated in Triathlon Training Clinic at the McGaw Y, led by Madison Graham, aquatics coordinator.

This was one of the very few youth multisport training programs of its kind in the country.
