The Salem Family YMCA proudly presents their 3rd annual Sprint Triathlon. Located just west of Roanoke in Salem, VA this race is easy to get to from anywhere in the Shenandoah Valley. The race begins with a 300 yard snake swim and after a short run to T1 begins a rolling 15K bike course. After taking in the scenery on the bike athletes will get to explore Salem with 2 loop run course totaling. All of this is followed up with great post race food and hospitality you will only find at the YMCA.
Salem is located slightly west of Roanoke and just off I-81.

Event Site Rules
This event is limited to the first 500 registrations.
This is a USA Triathlon sanctioned event.
Updating Your Swim Time
The last day to change your swim time is Friday May 18th. You can do this by logging into your profile, selecting this race registration and updating your swim time. Be sure to enter your time in MM:SS format.
Based upon your estimated 100 yard swim time you will be assigned a specific start time. It is in your best interest to submit a time as accurate as possible. Submitting a time that is too fast for you puts you up with swimmers who will be passing you during the swim - not good for you or them. Putting a time that is too slow places you with slower swimmers and forces you to have to pass everyone. The ideal scenario for all participants is to have people submit accurate times - the whole swim flows better.
Note - You should not submit your "all-out effort" time. The time that should be submitted isthe 100-yard "pace" that you can maintain for the entire swim.
