Race Hosted by KBTC to benefit the Northern York County YMCA
There had been much discussion among members in regards to giving back to the
community in which we live and train. We wanted to promote our love of the sport and
directly benefit the community. We voted unanimously to donate all proceeds from the event
to the Northern York County YMCA as it is where many of us train. The Northern York County
YMCA directly benefits over 2800 individuals and families by providing free or reduced rates
for membership, subsidized childcare and camp experiences. The NYC YMCA is able to
provide these invaluable experiences to the children, youth and families through the
generous donations they receive. If you would like to donate to the NYC YMCA please visit
their web site www.nycymca.org and click on the support the Y link. Thank you
A bit about us
Kennebunk Beach Triathlon Club (KBTC) is a group of Triathlon enthusiasts. We currently
have about 90 members. We call Mother's Beach in Kennebunk, Maine our home. We
meet here each Thursday night - after the ocean warms up enough in the season - to
practice and do mini-tri's together. Kennebunk Pond in Lyman, Maine is our Monday
evening group-swim location and where we first start off the Thursday night mini-tri's in the
spring. We do Sunday 8AM bike rides out of Lower Village, Kennebunk during the season.
We have voted to keep the club fairly informal. We encourage anyone to join us and check
things out. We have members of all ages and abilities.
