The course venue is the peaceful, family friendly, Ridgeview Park with a 50meter pool. Just 30minutes from Charlottesville.
Funds generated by this event support the ‘Cid fund’ – Cid Scallet was a tireless advocate for youth and families served by the YMCA.

Bike course description:
The bike portion of the Waynesboro YMCA "TRI for the Y" is a 15.5 mile route that begins and ends at Ridgeview Park in Waynesboro, VA. The route has a total ascent of 652.75 ft with a maximum elevation of 1,421.98 ft. Some riders may find the most difficult portion of the route at the outset and conclusion of the ride as one encounters a steep incline for approx 1/4 mile on 14th St, just outside Ridgeview Park (at outset and conclusion of the ride). While riding within the Waynesboro city limits, the roads are wide with some designated bike paths; otherwise "share the road" signage is prevalent. Outside the city limits and into Augusta County, riders will be on rolling, well-paved rural roads. Pot holes and other road hazards are minimal however riders should always be cautious. There are two areas of the route which passes over a railroad track; the first encounter is just short of MM8 on Lipscomb Rd and the other is just past the Lyndhurst and Nursery Rd intersection, at MM10.5.
