VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Vigo County YMCA members were faced with a new challenge and the results are in!
They smashed their goal of finishing a full triathlon!
The Terre Haute Y tested out a new event this year called the Turkey Triathlon. Participants got four weeks to swim, bike and run a total of 140.6 miles!
Organizers say it was a total success!
Erin Gregory with the Vigo County YMCA says 85 participants raised more than $1,000.
"It was just overwhelming and people came in and raced and they joined teams and we've had a really great response so we'll probably do it again next year," Gregory explained.
Gregory says the YMCA is thankful for the community's support and she says they definitely plan on hosting the Turkey Triathlon again next year!
