Warsaw Optimist Triathlon – Saturday, June 22

Winona Lake Park in Winona Lake, Indiana—Register

WARSAW, IN —The Warsaw Breakfast Optimist Club is the proud sponsor its 26th Annual Optimist Sprint Triathlon.  This family-friendly event offers  Adult (Age Group), Adult Relay, Kayak, Kayak Relay, Para Triathlete, and Youth divisions.

For this year, organizers have added a “Premier” division specifically for non-professional athletes who are extremely fast. Premier athletes start early in the wave order, and are subdivided by gender and age range, each of whom must meet (and submit proof of) qualifying times for eligibility:

• Premier Female Open
• Premier Male Open

At the Optimist Sprint Triathlon, Premier competitors will compete against other Premier Amateur athletes in their respective Open Age Group, not within the general Age Group division. Premier Amateur athletes will be seeded into the opening waves of the event, competing head-to-head with other top amateur triathletes. Awards will be presented to the top 3 in each gender

Youth will use the same Swim, Bike and Run racecourse as the adults, but each event will be shortened. Youth waves will launch immediately after all adult waves. We will have over 100 experienced volunteers participating to help make this a great race for all experienced, beginner and youth athletes.

Upon crossing the finish line, participants will be treated to a smorgasboard of post-race deliciousness—chicken, polish pierogies, pizza, fresh fruit and more!

The Optimist Club is a not for profit that donates all proceeds of this race to our youth outreach programs in our community and we are well known in our area for our support of many youth oriented activities. Please feel free to investigate our website for a full list of these events.
