0 "Tri Team Penguin": Ready, Set, Swim-Bike-Run! :)
Who-hooooo! I'm very happy to announce that we've finalized our 3-person triathlon relay team for the 4th Annual Lewisburg Triathlon.
This is exciting! We've got a really strong team, with each relay leg playing to our corresponding team member's current strengths: My dad will be biking 14.7 miles of hilly country road, a long-time family friend of ours will be doing the 300 yard pool swim, & I'll be running the final leg, a fairly flat & fast 5K road race.
If you're interested in participating in this event as either a triathlete or a volunteer, registration is available online for free via GoLARA.org or via Active.com (for a small surcharge). To register for this event online, you must first have a login (it's free for both sites) in order to register for this event.
Registration is limited to 300 participants.
Race proceeds will benefit the Lewisburg Area Recreation Authority (LARA). This non-profit organization provides year-round comprehensive recreational activities, facilities, & programs for the community. Contributions help improve the overall quality of life in the community by funding the maintenance of local area recreation facilities like the community pool, parks, playgrounds, outdoor ice rink, athletic fields, and trails, as well as assisting in new project & program development (i.e., new running/bike trails, etc.) & supporting the organization's ongoing operational needs, including their scholarship fund.
