William Street School Triathlon

Lancaster, NY

Due to the current situation regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we've unfortunately had to cancel this year's event.

On Wednesday May 27, 2020, over 400 third through sixth grade students from the Lancaster School District will compete in the 9th Annual William Street School Triathlon! 

     STAGE 1: SWIM

The first stage of the race begins at 6:00pm in the William Street School pool. Students will be issued their official wave start time at registration and must be present at the pool when it's their turn to start. Third and fourth graders will swim 30 yards and 5th and 6th graders will swim 60 yards.

     STAGE 2: BIKE

Upon completion of the swim, students will transition to the second stage of the race. Stage two is a 1-mile bike ride that takes place through the William Street School parking lots. Bikes will be positioned ahead of time in the designated staging area for use during the race.

     STAGE 3: RUN

Finally, after completing the 1-mile bike ride, students will complete a 1/2 mile cross country run (on the grass) before crossing the finish line and celebrating their accomplishment with family and friends!
