Welcome to the 2018 Middle Tyger YMCA Triathlon

The Middle Tyger YMCA is an established triathlon that joined the AAA South Carolina Triathlon Series in 2014.  We are excited to bring this quality event back into the AAA SC Tri Series and are certain you will enjoy it too.

Event Site Rules

USAT Sanctioned
The Middle Tyger YMCA Triathlon is a USA Triathlon sanctioned event.

Minimum Age
The minimum age allowed for participating in the Middle Tyger YMCA Triathlon is 10 years of age.  Exceptions will be made based on parent/guardian request. 

Event Capacity
This event is limited to the first 400 registrations.

Swim Time Changes
If you are trying to make an adjustment to your estimated swim time change given during registration please click HERE to learn how to do this.

Our registration system allows for people to access their registrations and adjust their swim times prior to the event.

NOTE: All swim times must be adjusted before online registration closes. After this time, participants will no longer be able to make this adjustment on their registration (the system will lock out any changes). Swim times will not be adjusted after this time for any reason.

Submitting a Swim Time
All participants must submit a 100 yard swim time for seeding purposes.

Being a pool swim with a staggered start, participants are seeded from fastest to slowest. It is in your best interest to submit an accurate 100 yard "pace" time for your 400 meter swim. In other words, don't submit your fastest 100 yard swim time, submit a 100 yard time that represents what you'll do on event day over the 400 meter distance.

Timing System
The Middle Tyger YMCA Triathlon will be timed using the MyLaps Tming System.
(5 splits provided)

On-Site Registration
On-site registrations will be taken if the event does not reach its capacity prior to the event closing for on-line registration.  Athletes can register on-site with cash or credit / debit card only.  Checks WILL NOT be taken.
