Wildcat Weekend

Join the St. Kate’s Team at the YWCA Women’s Triathlon

Show your purple pride and celebrate the strength in all women at the 12th annual YWCA Minneapolis Women’s Triathlon, Sunday, August 11.

Expect a sea of purple at the triathlon this year!

Our goal is to have 100 St. Kate's students, faculty, staff and alumnae/i join President Roloff to train and compete with the St. Kate's team. Why join?

  • All St. Kate's team members get a free performance T-shirt to wear on race day in a display of Katie solidarity!
  • You'll have a built-in support system throughout the training process, with a free training regimen provided by the YWCA.
  • Plus, the YWCA Women's Triathlon is famous for its welcoming and supportive environment—you'll be cheered on by more than 3,500 spectators and 300 volunteers.

Register as a member of the St. Kate's team.

Make sure you're counted as a Katie! When registering for the triathlon through the YWCA's online form:

  • Register as a member of the St. Kate’s team by entering "St. Kate's Team" in the "Employer, Alma Mater, etc." field
  • St. Kate's students: use the code "StKates19" in the "activity promo code" field for an extra $50 discount on your registration!

The triathlon will be held August 11, 2019 at Lake Nokomis in Minneapolis.

Training Plan


Prefer to show your Katie pride by "serving the dear neighbor"? We're hoping for a big St. Kate's contingent in the volunteer crew. Take advantage of these volunteer opportunities for individuals or groups, both in advance of and during race weekend.

All opportunities with descriptions, dates, times, locations and registration can be found at the triathlon volunteer sign-up page beginning mid-2019.
