Registration is underway now for those wishing to participate in the Y Rock Sprint Triathlon on Sunday, June 24 at J.E.R. Chilton YMCA, 1210 N. Goliad St. in Rockwall. The course features a 300-yard pool swim (snake swim in the Y’s 25-yard indoor pool), a 9.5 mile (2 loops) bike ride, and 3.1 mile run.
New this year is a Run-Bike-Run event happening at the same time, for those seeking an alternative to the traditional Swim-Bike-Run.
In addition, the Y Rock 5K and 1-Mile Fun Run returns this year, providing an opportunity for everyone of all ages and abilities to take part in an active, fun day.
Sponsored by Blue Ribbon News, these Y Rock events benefit the J.E.R Chilton YMCA at Rockwall, whose mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all. The funds help ensure that everyone can participate in Y programs, regardless of their financial situation. Supporting sponsors include American National Bank, Brad Epstein, Rockwall Futbol Club, Rockwall Sports Center, Lakeside Allergy, Ear, Nose & Throat, and Rockwall Nutrition.
