The Chelanman Youth Triathlon, Sunday, July 19.
In support of our younger generation of triathletes, we are excited to offer a youth triathlon for those 11-15 years old (*age is as of Dec.31. 2020*). This event features the same distance as the Try-a-Tri, only in its own category and wave. In the spirit of safety first, ChelanMan will offer additional support and rest options on the swim. It is the responsibility of all athletes, however, to train to finish each leg of the triathlon independently. RACE START TIMES CAN VARY, SO PLEASE BE SURE TO ASK YOUR RACE COORDINATORS OR VOLUNTEERS FOR ANY LAST MINUTE SCHEDULE CHANGES.
***There is a mandatory race meeting Saturday, July 18, at 7 pm at Lakeside Park in front of registration***

Swim will be a somewhat rectangular course clockwise from Lakeside Park's western-facing beach and exiting at its eastern-most beach.
When you mount your bike on Terrace Avenue, you will travel east 100 yards and turn right on East Center Street. Go one block and turn right onto Hwy 97A, heading west. The bike goes west along the lake on South Lakeshore Road (Hwy 971) 6.55 miles. The route is mostly flat with a few moderate hills. The out-and-back then returns to Lakeside Park following the same route on East Center Street and Terrace Avenue to the dismount area.
5K or 3.1 miles.
The run starts and finishes at Lakeside Park. You run on an out-and-back, mostly flat course turning around at about the 1.5 mile mark. The aid station is just before one mile, and you pass it coming back too.
You finish your race at Lakeside Park.
A volunteer will remove your timing chip. You can then enjoy the post-race food and activities.
