Tri for the Y
Sounds like fun, doesn’t it?
“We didn’t exactly shy away from making this challenging. We want to make this a legitimate event,” said Lee Robertson, a partner in Elevation Athletics, which is sponsoring the Tri for the Y sprint triathlon with the YMCA.
The triathlon is generating interest throughout the Mid-Atlantic, with registrations coming in from across Virginia, Maryland, Washington, D.C., and North Carolina.
“We’re looking to get more people from the local area involved,” said Robertson, an alum of the Shenandoah Marlins Aquatic Club program at the Waynesboro YMCA who moved on to compete on the swim team at the University of Virginia.
The goal is to make the Tri for the Y an annual Waynesboro Y event, Robertson said.
“We think it will be a great showcase for the city,” Robertson said. “Ridgeview Park and the pool are such great things for Waynesboro, as is the general setting. And the Y helps the community so much. This could be a great thing for the community and the Y.”
