This Saturday for the second year - the Hollidaysburg Area YMCA is hosting a Youth Triathlon.
No experience is necessary and it's open to kids ages 8-14.
According to Jenna Bartlett, a youth runner from Bellwood, the idea is to "Just get out and do what you want to do. Do sports and just exercise. Get out there and do something."

Saturday's event begins and ends at the Hollidaysburg Y on Route 36.  You'll swim inside the pool, and run and bike around the Hollidaysburg area.

Organizers call this an enjoyable athletic event that promotes a healthy lifestyle, provides a chance to meet new friends and build self confidence.

The deadline to register is Friday afternoon.
