Sixth Grade Triathlon - Traditions - McDonogh School

Sixth Grade Triathlon

Fun and fitness are the name of the game each year at the Sixth Grade Triathlon. After three weeks of “training” during their physical education classes, students hit the pool where they swim eight lengths (200 meters), then hop on their bikes for a 1.75 mile ride around campus, and finish up with a .75 mile run. The award at the end of the race is the pride and joy on the faces of the athletes for having completed the challenge.
