YMCA holds 9th annual kids tri

ONALASKA, Wis. (WKBT) - It was a perfect Saturday morning for a triathlon.


The R.W. Houser Family YMCA in Onalaska hosted its ninth annual kids triathlon Saturday morning.
Kids ages 3-14 were able to swim, bike, and run to complete a triathlon.


sixty volunteers were available throughout the course helping guide the kids to the finish line and provide them encouragement.


Shawn McClone, special events coordinator for the YMCA said this event is special because it introduces kids to different ways of  staying active.


“This event is so important to get people out and active and enjoy the beautiful weather we're having, but also to familiarize themselves with a different sport or different type of exercise. Maybe they do this kids tri and they realize how much they love swimming and start  swimming for a while,” McClone said.


It was a record breaking year for the event with more than 200 participants.Each child who finished the race received a finishers medal.
