Virtual Event Details
July 26th - August 2, 2020
Swim. Bike. Run. Celebrate! At Home!
Join us in 2020 for the virtual edition of the Schultz Family Triathlon.
How Does a Virtual Event Work?
Virtual Events are a great way to participate in any event! We recommend that all parts of the triathlon are completed with direct support & supervision from family and friends.
Step Two: Receive your packet
Now that you have your race shirt, bib number & medal, put them in a safe place for race week. It is time to start training for your race (see below training plan) and work with your family on coming up with a fun and rewarding course.
Included in race entry
We've got you covered for this year's virtual race....check out these items below!
Step Three: Time to Race!
You may complete any part of the race throughout the race week. For example, you may choose to Swim on Monday, Bike on Tuesday and Run on Friday. Done! Or you may be able to complete one or more segments in one day. It's up to YOU!
Suggested distanced are listed below, but by no means required.
Don't have access to water? No worries...
This can be in a pool or other body of water. Don't have access to a pool? Simply swap this leg of the Triathlon out with any activity. Jumping jacks, monkey bars, run through the sprinkler... It's all part of a healthy lifestyle!
Ride your bike around your neighborhood, on a bike path...with family or friends. Just remember to wear your helmet.
Run in your home neighborhood, on a track, or even run around your house. These are all examples of how to adapt and complete the final leg of the race.

We will be utilizing a staggered start for each age group to ensure proper timing of each participant and to keep the course from being too crowded. We will start with the oldest participants and work our way down to the youngest participants and adaptive division.
The Walnut Street School Parking Lot, on the corner of Walnut Street & Elm Road is where most people should park and is the most convenient to the race. Families parking in this lot will need to wait until the entire bike portion of the event has concluded prior to leaving. If you are on a tight schedule and not sticking around for the post-race celebration, then park in the parking lot on Lowell Avenue, Hull Street or a side street that is not near the bike section of the course.
