I’ve never been in a triathlon (a goal yet ahead), but those far younger than I am will have that chance on Saturday, July 27th:
The sixth annual Fort Youth Triathlon will once again be swimming, riding, and running through Fort Atkinson’s Aquatic Center in Rock River Park on Saturday, July 27. Anyone ages 7-14 can participate in this event. Registration costs $35 per participant between now and July 26, and then $40 on July 27 the day of the event. Registration includes race packet, t-shirt, entry into door prizes and a finishers medal.
Best spots to view the event are on Montclair Street (see the biking portion), or at the finish line, near the Aquatic Center’s parking lot. First race starts at 8:00 and the medals ceremony will start around 11:00 am.
Anyone interested in volunteering, please contact the Parks & Rec department at (920) 563-7781.
Pick up registration forms at the Fort Aquatic Center, or Fort Atkinson Parks & Recreation Department or online at www.fortparksandrec.com (on page 7 of our summer brochure). Register your child at the Parks and Rec office at 30 N. Water St. W. Office hours are 8-Noon & 12:30-4:30.
