Welcome to the 2014 Middle Tyger YMCA Triathlon

The Middle Tyger YMCA is an established triathlon that has joined the South Carolina Triathlon Series in 2014.  We are excited to bring this quality event into the SC Tri Series and are certain you will enjoy it too.

In addition to the Triathlon the Middle Tyger YMCA event offers a Duathlon option (1 mile Run - 14 mile Bike - 5 km Run).

NOTE - T-shirts will be guaranteed to the first 140 registrations.  

Event Site Rules

Event Capacity
This event is limited to the first 400 registrations.

Swim Time Changes
If you are trying to make an adjustment to your estimated swim time change given during registration please click HERE to learn how to do this.

Our registration system allows for people to access their registrations and adjust their swim times prior to the event.

NOTE: All swim times must be adjusted no later than Wednesday June 4, 2014 at 7AM. After this time, participants will no longer be able to make this adjustment on their registration (the system will lock out any changes). Swim times will not be adjusted after this time for any reason.

Submitting a Swim Time
All participants must submit a 100 yard swim time for seeding purposes.

Being a pool swim with a staggered start, participants are seeded from fastest to slowest. It is in your best interest to submit an accurate 100 yard "pace" time for your 400 meter swim. In other words, don't submit your fastest 100 yard swim time, submit a 100 yard time that represents what you'll do on event day over the 400 meter distance.
