"Five Things you Need to Know Today" is a Patch column that provides readers with essential, daily information at a glance.
1. "Try a Tri" at the Stoughton Y
This Saturday, Feb. 23, the Stoughton YMCA will be hosting a modified indoor triathlon that allows those who have never done a triathlon, as well as those who have competed before, to have fun and start the triathlon season early.
Participants ages 6 and up are welcome and are broken down into different heats.
Each age group has a different amount of swim, bike and run that they must complete (see chart below).
The cost for Y members is $10 and Non-Members is $15.
