The Skaneateles Labor Day Race Weekend’s 5th Annual MiniSkinny Youth Race Events will be held on Saturday, August 30, 2014 from 1:00 to 3:00 at the Skaneateles YMCA Community Center. This is NOT a timed event.  It is an opportunity for your young athlete to participate in an enjoyable life-experience through athletics. It is not structured as a highly competitive event. Rather, the objective is to encourage self-confidence, good health and community spirit through participation.

Race Descriptions:

MiniSkinny/Dash: There is no fee to participate and no pre-registration required. Parents will have to sign a Dash waiver/registration form on race day. There is no limit to the number of racers. The Dash is not a USAT sanctioned event.

MiniSkinny/Youth Triathlon: Limited to 96 participants, divided between two age groups. Online registrations via score-this.com, will be accepted until 11:59 pm on Monday, August 25, 2014. The online entry fee is $20 for USAT Youth Members. The online entry fee is $25 for non-USAT Youth Members, which includes a one day USAT Event Fee required for insurance.  If the event has not reached its capacity of 48 athletes per age group, registrations will be accepted at Skaneateles YMCA and Community Center on Friday, August 29, between 4:00 and 7:00 pm.
