Join in the fun at the Labor Day Triathlon & Route Preview Clinic

IMG_2436no year labor tri logono year labor tri logono year labor tri logono year labor tri logono year labor tri logoMany 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

Get Involved in the Layton Triathlon

layton triathlon

I love local events and this one is one of my favorites! There are many reasons I love the Layton Triathlon: For one it’s local, so I don’t have to travel far to compete. Two is something my family can be a part of (who doesn’t love their own cheering section?).  Three –  it’s a fun challenge to do two mini tri’s back-to-back.  This race is unique and is set up to swim-bike-run, then do it all over again; so you have to go from a run back to the swim.  I have to admit it feels really good to jump back in the water after getting hot on the run.  I have done this race many times, here’s some pictures from the events over the years.  One year it even landed on my birthday – and the whole crowd sang to me – it was pretty cool!  My favorite picture below is my cute little kids cheering!  The event will be held on August 2nd this year.  It’s a fun one to get involved with!  Use the code BLDRUN and save $ (thanks for reading).   Learn more
