_ The 2018 FFYTri+:
Join us for the 23rd Annual FFYTri+
This fun challenge is a fundraiser for Foundation For Youth to provide scholarships to area youth for afterschool care with the Boys & Girls Club; summer programs at our Youth Camp; mentoring with Big Brothers, Big Sisters; Athletic programs such as basketball and volleyball.
The Sprint and Olympic Triathlons start in the private waters of North Lake in Tipton Lakes; then on to the scenic bike course of western Bartholomew County, and complete the last discipline of the race running through the neighborhoods of Tipton Lakes. The same courses will be enjoyed by the athletes participating in the Sprint and Olympic Duathlons. These are USAT Sanctioned Races.
A 5k & 10k walk/run will be through the scenic neighborhood of Tipton Lakes.
Hundreds of volunteers and staff come together to provide each athlete the opportunity to experience the FFYTri+, doing their personal best and making the most of their training, all while supporting our area youth!
