Up and Running Swim and Triathlon

Up and Running Swim and Triathlon is a United States Masters Swimming (USMS) group dedicated to swimmers and triathletes who want to improve technique, endurance and speed with coached workouts, while training with a friendly, motivating group.

Athletes should be comfortable swimming at least 1,800 yards in a workout format (ie not straight swimming) in one hour.

USMS membership is required of all swimmers, however you may visit as a guest by filling out a 30-Day trial form and signing a waiver. Workout times are 5:00 am – 6:00 am on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at the West Carrollton YMCA.

Up and Running Jr’s

Come learn and enjoy the benefits of running through a positive and rewarding experience! Your child will be grouped by ability to meet individual needs. We have created three fun groups that will suit your children’s needs based on their varying degree of development. The three groups are:

Lynx – My child can run but needs frequent walking breaks during running. They can run less than 2:00 before needing a break. Sustained running for distance is new for my child.

Servals – My child can run about a mile or 8-12 min. without requiring a break. My child has attempted sustained running for distance in a practice, race, or for fun.

Ocelot – My child has successfully sustained running a 5K during the past year.

Thank you for a great Juniors 2022!  See you in 2023!
