3/2/2017 Caine Halter YMCA Adds Youth Triathlon to 2017 Event
The Caine Halter YMCA has announced the addition of a Youth Triathlon category at the 2017 Caine Halter Triathlon.  The youth race will consist of a 200 meter pool swim, 3 mile closed course bike and a 1.5 mile run.  The Youth Triathlon will be open to all youth ages 8-15 as an alternative to running the adult version of the Caine Halter Triathlon.  Registration is now open for the Youth Triathlon in addition to the Adult Triathlon.

Description

An eighth year sprint event held at the Caine Halter Family YMCA in Greenville, SC, this triathlon will be a perfect starting point for any first time triathletes out there. It also will be a great way for seasoned triathletes to test their speed on this fast and criterium style course.

The event will begin with a 300 yard Pool Swim in the outdoor pool at the Caine Halter YMCA. From there a short run to transition will take athletes onto the bike. The bike course will feature many closed streets making for a safe and exciting event. The 9 mile course will consist of 3 fast loops before returning to the YMCA for an equally fast run. This out and back style course will be run entirely on city sidwalks and the beautiful Swamp Rabbit Trail skirting along the Reedy River. Flat and fast is the name of the game on this 5K.

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, Wednesday, June 14, 2017,2017 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 300 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 300 meter distance.

Cut-Off Time
All participants must complete the event in under 2 hours, 00 minutes from the start of the final wave. Event officials reserve the right to pull a participant off the course if it appears as though that participant will not be able to complete the event in under 2 hours, 00 minutes.
