J.A.C. Triathlon Set for June 1 Introduces Relay Option!
The Junior Advisory Council (J.A.C.) will host the third annual Coffeyville Youth Triathlon on Saturday, June 1, 2013 at 8 a.m. at Pfister Park in Coffeyville, Kansas. Kids ages 7-18 will swim, bike and run in a competition held around the city pool. Youth have a new option of gathering friends for a relay team. Teams of three will compete in the same distances with one member swimming, one biking, and one running. Youth also have the option of doing both an individual and a leg of a relay team! Kids must provide their own bicycles and helmets. The junior division (ages 7-10) will swim 100 yards, bike 3.1 miles and run .64 of a mile. The senior division participants (ages 11-18) will swim 200 yards, bike 6.2 miles and run 1.2 miles. Relay teams will be divided by age with a junior relay of ages 7-10, and two senior relay races with ages 11-15 and 16-18. All participants will receive a t-shirt and all finishers will earn a medal. Prizes will be given for the top three finishers in each age division (there are five divisions) as well as the first and second top male and female finishers overall. Winning relay teams will also be awarded prizes! Participant registration forms are available now at www.coffeyvillefoundation.org or call 620-870-8778. The registration fee is $25 and may be paid at the racer meeting on May 31.
