The “One hour Race” will take place at the Daviess County Family YMCA March 8, starting at 8 a.m.
Contestants, members and non-members fifteen years of age and older are invited to challenge their endurance in swimming, biking and running for distance. Each event will take 15 minutes. Points will be assigned to determine place. Medals will be awarded to the first through third place finishers in both the woman’s and men’s division. The winner will be declared for having the most distance in all three events. All participants will receive a t-shirt. “Waves” of five competitors will swim for 15 minutes and then have 10 minutes to dress and report to the cycling room for another 15 minutes of cycling on the spinning bike. After a 5 minute break the contestants will be measured for the distance run on the treadmill. An official will rotate with the “wave” recording distances on all three events.
This year a special duathlon (bike/run) has been created. There will also be a team completion where each person does one venue.
“Although the event will be competitive anyone who exercises regularly and is in good health can participate,” said Y director Tom Danehy. Non-competing members for the Y are invited to exercise that day. However, all the treadmills will be needed for the event.
It is recommended that you arrive 30 minutes before your “wave assignment”. The program will be over by noon. Interested volunteers should contact Heather Elliott at 254-4481.
