Kids Tri Too 2019 Overview

Tri To Finish is excited to team with the YMCA of downtown Saginaw to provide a platform for local youths to gain exposure to healthy lifestyles and competitive multisport athletics. This event is being brought to the community by local area credit unions who have a vision of giving back and embracing communities in which they are embedded within. Impact Saginaw has teamed with us to provide a FREE platform for 300 athletes to show their grit and will in our first annual youth triathlon. Due to this race's popularity in year one, we will once again cap the race at 300. We encourage you to sign up early to secure your spot in the race. Each athlete will receive a event shirt, event finisher medal, and a high impact finisher photo. This will be an event that your kids will talk about for a lifetime, and if Impact Saginaw, Tri To Finish, and the YMCA have anything to do with it we will have some kids hooked on healthy living for a long time to come!
