Dear YMCA Members, Community Partners, and Race Participants,

These last few weeks and months have been extraordinary as our community, state, country and world navigate the rapidly changing challenges related to COVID-19. Given all the uncertainty and the stress that come with these challenges, it has never been more critical to stay together, even as we follow the guidelines from officials to keep each other and our community healthy.

Based on continued recommendations from the CDC, state and local health officials and area health departments, we must postpone our 2020 Kids Triathlon to tentatively April 17th, 2021.

At the Stanly County Family YMCA, everything we do is guided by our commitment to nurture the potential of children, support your health and well-being, and provide support for our neighbors and the community. We’re so much more than a gym. And here, at the Y, you’re much more than just a facility member, community partner or race participant. At our YMCA, you’re a part of our purpose and you’re a partner in strengthening the foundations of our community.

In difficult times, our Y has always boldly marched toward challenges and we pivot in response to community needs. Today is no different. You can help, and we’re counting on you.

As our postponed August race date approaches, we want to offer you options regarding your registration:

  1. Convert your registration to a donation. If you wish to have your registration dues converted to a tax-deductible donation during these challenging times, we greatly appreciate it. 
  2. Defer your registration to our 2021 date.

If you have any further questions or concerns moving forward, please do not hesitate to reach out to Derrick Almond at

**Participants have until August 10th 2020 to contact Derrick Almond; otherwise their registration will be automatically deferred to our April 17th, 2021 date.**

We realize you have to make the best decision for you and your family. On behalf of everyone in the community counting on our Y in the weeks ahead, thank you for your strong consideration to stay with us. Our community needs you.


Stay Healthy,

Derrick Almond

Fitness Director/Race Director

Here Are Your Options:

You understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.

We will automatically transfer your registration to the 2021 Stanly Kids Triathlon.

Returning to Stanly County, the Y and Great Clips are proud to present the STANLY KIDS TRI for children ages 3-14. Through this event, participants will have the opportunity to swim, bike, and run while making a difference in the lives of other kids in their community. Every child should have the opportunity to experience a summer filled with fun, excitement, and adventure. Unfortunately many children in our community never get that chance. Participants in the STANLY KIDS TRI will help make this happen! Each child will not only train to complete the adventure of a triathlon but will also raise dollars to Send a Kid to Camp this summer who would not otherwise have that chance.  All funds raised will benefit the Open Doors Scholarship Program for Summer Camp at the Stanly County Family YMCA.
