Triathlon Training

Parent's Night Out
If you're training for a triathlon in Greater Syracuse - swimming, bicycling and running - you need to get to the YMCA.

We have the most comprehensive training facilities, widest variety of programs and best coaches in Central New York.

Need help with motivation? We have that too. Our supportive triathlon community - people like you - are ready to help you through the ups and downs of training.

And, of course, we run the area's longest-running (and best) event, the YMCA Race Weekend.
