The Westport Weston Family Y proudly presents the first annual Mossman Westport Y Indoor Tri on Sunday, March 3. Conducted in partnership with Team Mossman Triathlon Club, the indoor triathlon will consist of a 15-minute lap swim, a 25-minute cycle on a spin bike and a 20-minute run on a treadmill.
The Indoor Tri will take place from 10 am to 1 pm at the Family Y’s facility in downtown Westport. The field is limited to 42 participants (Y membership not required). The entry fee is $45 per individual; $65 per relay team of two or three participants. To register, please go to www.active.com and search “Mossman Westport Y.” Proceeds will benefit the Family Y’s Strong Kids Campaign and Junior Athletes for Maccabi USA.

“Team Mossman has been a part of our Y for years,” said Jay Jaronko, Senior Program Director for the Family Y. “And although they conduct numerous races and training sessions across Connecticut and have done several indoor triathlons in New Jersey, this is the first time they’ve organized an indoor tri in Fairfield County. What better place than the Family Y, with our Stauffer Pool, Cardio Center and Spinning Room? We’re very excited to be able to host these multisport athletes on March 3.”
The swim laps, spin bike and treadmill distances will be aggregated and scored to get the top three male and female triathletes. Unlike an outdoor triathlon, the transition times indoors do not count toward the overall finish time, and participants will have time to get from one stage to the next.
“Team Mossman isn’t just about racing, it’s about enjoying exercising and the camaraderie,” said Robin Myers, Race Director. “We know this inaugural Indoor Tri at the Y will be a lot of fun and we hope it will be the first of many.”
Given the limited field, Myers expects race registration to fill soon, so he encourages early registration and cannot guarantee that race day registration will be available.
