Your triathlon will begin at the pool with a 400 meter swim. The pool at the SouthwestValley YMCA is 50 meters long. There are eight lanes and the swim will be serpentine style. You swim up one lane, cross under the lane line and swim down the next lane until you reach the opposite side of the pool. In keeping with the noncompetitive nature of MomsTRI, kickboards are available if you're worried about the swim. Really, this event is for everyone and every ability level. You can swim any stroke and even walk through the pool if you need to! We don't care how you swim, just that you're joining us for a great experience! When you check-in at the packet pick up or the morning of the race, we'll ask you to choose a swim group based on your estimated swim time. Faster swimmers will be the first group to begin and each swimmer will be staggered to allow space between participants.
Again, don't stress about this- it's just to help us organize you into groups and get the event going. We'll give you a wristband corresponding to your ranking, making it easy to find your group when you line up at the pool.
