History

The YMCA of Southwestern Indiana is very excited to offer an XTERRA. An XTERRA consists of an open water swim, a mountain bike and a trail run.

Triathlons - once thought to be the domain of the super fit few - have been growing in popularity. People of all ages and abilities are participating in triathlons all over the country.

XTERRA's have become quite popular in recent years as more and more people are looking for ways to challenge themselves beyond the typical weekend walk or run.

It is the goal of the YMCA of Southwestern Indiana to offer this exciting opportunity for fitness enthusiasts and beginners in Evansville and the surrounding area.
