Health Beat: Kids night at YWCA

The YWCA of Greater Newburyport is offering a fun Friday for youth in grades 4 and 5 tonight.

From 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the YWCA Pond Street branch, kids can participate in the YWCA’s version of the television show “Minute To Win It!” Do you like a good challenge? How about getting incredibly silly and having tons of fun? Or discovering skills you never even knew you had? Then head to the YWCA.

Pizza will be served and prizes will be awarded to all participants, with special prizes being awarded to our first-, second- and third-place winners. Call the YWCA at 978-465-9922 to register.

Triathlon registration

under way

Never tried a triathlon? Now’s the time with “Tri for the YWCA,” the organization’s annual Indoor Triathlon set for Sunday, March 24, at the YWCA Greater Newburyport, 13 Market St.

Events will include an indoor swim of 10 minutes in 25-yard pool, an indoor cycle of a 25-minute ride on a spin bike, and a run. Weather permitting it will be an outdoor 3K, but in the event of inclement weather, participants will do a 10-minute run on a treadmill or elliptical.

Tri for the YWCA begins at 8 a.m.; following waves start every 30 minutes. The triathlon is for all ages and fitness levels. Enter as an individual and try your best at all three sports or enter as a team and do the sport you like best. Registrants who are not members of the YWCA can pay a $5/visit or “drop-in” fee for swim and bike practice. Register online only: http://www.active.com/running/newburyport-ma/tri-for-the-ywca-2013.
