    2020 Shermanator Canceled

    The Shermanator Triathlon is a fundraising event hosted at the Sherman Lake YMCA Outdoor Center and is excellent for the beginner or competitive athlete. You will find it to be one of the most beautiful race venues in the region. The swim is in crystal clear Sherman Lake. The bike is on public roads (39th St., "G" Avenue and 37th Street) adjacent to the Sherman Lake YMCA Outdoor Center and the run includes a section inside the Outdoor Center grounds with a loop on nearby 38th Street.

    The Shermanator has raised funds annually for the Sherman Lake YMCA to benefit families in need in Kalamazoo and Calhoun Counties for the past 17 years. The Sherman Lake YMCA programs build strong kids, strong families, and strong communities through instilling values of honesty, caring, respect, and responsibility. It is only with the great support of people such as yourself, that each year, hundreds of individuals receive partial financial assistance to become members at the Sherman Lake YMCA.
