Are you ready to try a Tri? The Y Be Fit Palm Desert Challenge, held annually at the beginning of October, is an excellent opportunity to do so. While not without its challenges, the shorter length of this “Reverse Triathlon” (5K run, 10 mile bike, 300 meter swim) makes it the perfect distance for all ages and abilities.
The event benefits the Family YMCA of the Desert, and so it’s not unusual to see entire families participating in the Reverse Triathlon, the 5K Run and Walk or the 1K Color Run. Thanks to the relaxed, non-judgmental atmosphere, everyone truly is welcome, from elite athletes to novices.
Participating in the Event
The Y Be Fit Palm Desert Challenge is open to everyone, young and old. For more information visit the Y Be Fit Palm Desert website or contact the YMCA of the Desert at 760-341-9622.
