The Kendallville Sprint Triathlon is the July sprint triathlon you don’t want to miss! This race supports the local summer day camp which is a partnership between the YMCA and the Parks Department. The proceeds go towards scholarships for the youth of our community to help them attend summer camp! Last year we had over 200 kids in our summer camp and we hope to continue to grow the program with the support of this race!
Located about 25 minutes north of Fort Wayne , and designed by experienced triathletes, the course is both beginner friendly and a competitive experience for more advanced triathletes.
You will appreciate the closed bike course, shady park setting, friendly local volunteers, race organization, excellent safety provisions, and participant medals.
This USAT-sanctioned race is co-hosted by the Cole Center Family YMCA and City of Kendallville.
The 500-meter lake swim is followed by a 12.75-mile bike race and closing with a 5-K cross-country style run. The run includes some trails and some sidewalks throughout and around the scenic Bixler Lake Park. Two and three person teams are welcome; the race also includes a youth division for teens age 15 – 17.
The duathlon race will start near the beach at 7:30 a.m. following the same run and bike courses as the Triathlon.
The park setting includes children’s play equipment to entertain younger spectators.
