Strokes, Spokes & Strides is a sprint distance triathlon located in beautiful Waynesboro, Pennsylvania. The inaugural event was held in 2015 as a celebration of the Waynesboro Area YMCA 100 year anniversary. Our goal was to create an event that would promote community spirit and welcome all levels of athlete.

The triathlon course can be completed as an individual or as part of a three person relay team. Athletes of all levels are encouraged to compete – experienced cross trainers, families as well as first time competitors.

The triathlon start, swim, transition area and finish are located at the Y. The swim portion of the event is held in the Y’s six-lane, 25meter pool; the bike and run routes will take athletes through tree lined neighborhoods and farmland throughout Waynesboro.

We’re also excited to offer two additional race day events: Aquavelo (swim/bike) and Duathlon (run/bike/run).

We invite you to participate as a sponsor for this awesome community event!
There are various levels of sponsorship and it’s not too late to sponsor the triathlon, just submit our sponsor form.  Please contact Sarah Stains for more information.
