Many years back I got my triathlon start on Labor Day at my first ever triathlon! It was held at the old facility known as the “bubble” back then. I had a blast and was hooked instantly. Since then the South Davis Recreation Center has built a new facility and continue to offer great events including a Labor Day Triathlon. I have done this one several times and well as my children and would highly recommend it. It will be held on Labor Day (Monday Sept. 1st, 2014). All levels are welcome including beginners to advanced athletes. There are several different categories available too, so if you are new to triathlon this is a great event for you! They have a novice distance as well as relay and sprint:
SPRINT: Swim 350 yds; Bike 12 mi; Run 3.35 mi
RELAY: Split the Sprint between 2-3 racers
NOVICE: Swim 150 yds; Bike 2.4 mi; Run 1.5 mi
You can get registered for the event on active.com
Come join in the fun!
Unable to race? No problem, we’d love to have you volunteer. If you’d like to get involved please message me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Free Triathlon Clinic & Route Preview
I will be offering a free Triathlon Clinic and route pre-view the Friday before the event for those registered. Be sure and RSVP to reserve a spot so I have enough handouts email@example.com
We will be meeting at the pavilion behind the facility on Friday August 29 at 5:30 p.m. I will show you how to set up your transition area and review the route and how the triathlon works. I am happy to answer any questions you may have as well. This is great for beginners or those new to this race. Bring your bike and helmet; we will ride the sprint distance route as well. Come join the fun! Triathlons are a blast!
