Green Lakes Triathlon & Race Weekend

It's three races in an amazingly beautiful venue, including the YMCA's Green Lakes Triathlon - celebrating its 36th year in 2015. These races are run entirely by volunteers, meaning that 100% of the money raised supports the charitable work of the YMCA, particularly LIVESTRONG at the YMCA and the Y's otherfree programs for cancer survivors.

Active Adults
