The 4th Annual Heart of Summer Triathlon will be held at the West Side Y on August 18th at 8:30am. This triathlon is for adult athletes within our special needs community. Each racer will have a volunteer accompany them throughout the race to motivate them and assist as needed.
The course will consist of a 200 yd swim in the West Side Y outdoor pool, a 3 mile bike on a stationary bike located on the outdoor pool deck, and a half-mile run from the outdoor pool deck onto the West Hills Greenway.
