Pinedale Triathlon

January 27, 2009

In recognition of National Mentor month and as a promotional event for Big Brothers Big Sisters, the Pinedale Aquatic Center (PAC) and Proactive Fitness sposored the first annual Pinedale Indoor Triathlon on Saturday, January 24th. 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 was 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.

Participants used both co-sponsoring centers, with PAC holding the swimming and running portions and Proactive Fitness holding the biking portion. This allowed both facilities to highlight their unique fitness aspects.
