Indoor Triathlons

Brave the Event, Not the Elements!

Indoor Triathlons at YWCA Minneapolis are an excellent opportunity to stay focused during the cold Minnesota winters, engage with your community and make progress towards your personal fitness goals. Adults and youth (of all genders) age 14 and up are welcome to join, even those without past triathlon or racing experience.

If this is your first triathlon, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the positive and supportive atmosphere. Similar to YWCA Women’s Triathlon, our indoor events can help novices gain competence and confidence — while acting as a great addition to the training regimen of seasoned athletes. In either case, expect to enjoy a day of excitement, encouragement and connection with your fellow racers.

Course Information & Distances

The Sprint Course consists of a 500-yard swim, ten-mile bike course and a two-mile run.

YWCA Midtown’s pool is a six-lane, 25-yard pool. Two triathletes will share a lane. Each lane will have a lap recorder/timer. Average water temperature is 80-82 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • 500 yards = 10 laps/20 lengths

You can adjust the bike for a comfortable fit. One side of the pedal is a standard platform with toe cages. The other side of the pedal is compatible with SPD-style bike cleat.

Run or walk on the track in the Minneapolis Sports Center — a regulation 200-meter indoor track.

Event Notes

  • All genders are welcome to race!
  • Youth ages 14 and older can participate.
  • If running isn’t your thing, we welcome you to walk the “run” portion of the race.
  • Packet pickup is the day of the event; please plan to arrive 30-45 minutes before heat start time.
  • We have a no-refund policy.
  • If you have any heat requests, we will do our best to accommodate but it is not guaranteed. No request will be accepted after heat assignments have been made – heats will be set the Monday before the race date, this includes anyone registering the week before the race.
