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 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.

The Waynesboro Area YMCA and Waves Swim Team is excited to host the 2017 inaugural Summer Shuffle 5K!  The 5K race will begin at 8am at the Y and follow the “Beck & Back” triathlon route.  Athletes of all ages are encouraged to compete in this fun, family friendly event.

We are proud to have Racine MultiSports timing the triathlon and 5K.

Each triathlon participant will be timed using timing chips.  Racers will be given a timing chip while in line for the swim, minutes before the race begins.  The chip must be worn low on the ankle.  Relay teams must hand off the chip in the transition area after each section of the race. Chips will be collected at the finish line.

Summer Shuffle 5K runners will wear a shoe tag for timing.
