YMCA North hosts 8th Annual Kids Tri

Hundreds of kids participated in the 8 th annual Kids Tri in Onalaska on Saturday.

The YMCA North hosted the triathlon which included biking, swimming and running.

About 200 kids, between the ages of 3 and 14, participated in the event.

With summer activities in full swing, organizers say it’s a great way to remind kids of all the ways the can stay active.

“A lot of kids who do this event, they all of a sudden become interested in biking or running or swimming that they might have never known they liked doing until they tried an event like this,” said Shawn McClone, race director.

All proceeds from the event go directly to the Y’s Annual Campaign
