It isn't too late to sign up for the Pinedale Indoor Triathlon.
In recognition of National Mentor month and as a promotional event for Big Brothers Big Sisters, the Pinedale Aquatic Center (PAC) and Proactive Fitness are sponsoring the first annual Pinedale Indoor Triathlon in January of 2009. Together, PAC and Proactive are aiming to promote physical fitness and New Year’s Resolutions, while at the same time encouraging and identifying mentoring in the community.
This unique event is designed for people of all levels of fitness and allows for individual goal setting; making the timing of the event ideal for those with fitness based New Year’s resolutions.
The indoor triathlon differs from a traditional triathlon in that participants do not complete a set distance, rather the distance completed during the following timed events will be counted:
× 10 minute swim
× 20 minute bike
× 15 minute run
The distances for each event are recorded and combined for a total triathlon distance.
During the event, participants will use both co-sponsoring centers, with PAC holding the swimming and running portions and Proactive Fitness holding the biking portion. This will allow both facilities to highlight their unique fitness aspects.
Big Brothers Big Sisters volunteers and staff will help run the event. A display will be set up to educate participants about their program and information on how to get involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters will be available.
In addition, as encouragement for mentor/mentee pairs to participate together, the top distance pair finishers will be acknowledged along with the individual top finishers from each age group. For participating, all athletes will receive a t-shirt.
To help you prepare for the swimming portion of the triathlon, the PAC is offering a Adult Swim Clinic on Thursday, January 22nd.
