Triathlon in Richfield June 28th

You know you have always wanted to say you’re a triathlete. Now here’s your chance! If you can swim, bike, and run, the first annual Fish Lake Triathlon is for you. Begin your training and get registered to join participants from all areas of Utah and throughout the United States. All three events are held in Richfield and each of these races will begin and end at the Richfield City Swimming Pool. This triathlon is called a sprint, because it will consist of a 1/4 mile swim in the Richfield City Swimming Pool, a 12.5 mile bike ride out past the Cove View Golf Course and back, and the final leg will be a 3.2 mile run. This is a fairly flat course with minimal hills, helping you to accomplish your lowest record-setting times. The events will be followed by an awards ceremony and prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places in both male and female categories ages 0-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50 & up.  Milliseconds computerized timing chips will be used for perfect accuracy. Generous sponsors are from local and national businesses such as Oakley and Powerade. All proceeds for the triathlon will go to Rotary International, to help eradicate polio throughout the world. Working with Richfield City on this project, Rotary President, Dr. Richard Luekenga said, “We hope this triathlon will become an annual event, bringing new visitors to our beautiful area that will benefit our community in the years to come.”
