Second Annual Tri Springfield Triathlon

Second Annual Tri Springfield Triathlon

The Springfield Recreation Department is hosting a youth triathlon, known as “Tri Springfield”, for the second year in a row.  The event will be held on Saturday, August 31st at the Springfield Community Pool.  The three-part competition consists of swimming, biking and running.  The distances vary depending on the age of the participant.

The triathlon is open to children ages 5 through 12, and training wheels are allowed for athletes up to age 7.  The cost to enter is $25 for Springfield residents and $35 for non-residents.  Registration and body marking will start at 7 a.m. and last until 7:50 a.m.  The first wave starts at 8 a.m. and each age group will start separately.

Registration is open from June 1 through August 18.  The point of contact is Danielle McLeer of the Springfield Recreation Department and she can be reached at trispringfield@gmail.com if anyone is seeking more information or interested in volunteering.  According to Danielle, “This event is for the children in our community and surrounding towns to be able to gain confidence and a sense of accomplishment to finish 3 events back to back.  You are competing against yourself, there are no times in this event so that everyone feels like they can do this.”  Race registration is through RaceIt.com at https://www.raceit.com/Register/default.aspx?event=21191

There were over 80 participants in 2012 and it was well-received by the community.
