Youth triathlon coming to Bass Lake Sept. 7

July 30, 2013 

Applications are now being accepted for the inaugural My-Tri Triathlon at Bass Lake.

The short-course triathlon will be held at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 7 at Miller's Landing Resort. Organizers are inviting children ages 5-17 to participate in either the junior or masters divisions of the race.

The junior division involves a 50-yard swim, 1.5 mile bike ride and 1/2 mile run while the masters division boasts a 100-yard swim, four mile bike ride and one mile swim.

The event is hosted by Miller's Landing Resort and proceeds will go to benefit North Fork Elementary School athletics.

Carrie Waltner, director of the event, said that the "idea" behind the event is to raise money for their school and "promote healthy living for our Mountain Area youth."

Organizers are hoping for a turnout of 75 competitors.

All participants must provide their own life jacket and bike helmet for the races. The race will include rest stops, goodie bags, and lunch for all racers.

The cost to enter the event is $25 per person and includes a free T-shirt if registered before Aug. 26. Registration after Aug. 26 will incur a $5 increase. The cost is $35 the day of the race so pre-registration is recommended.

Morning registration begins at 6 a.m. at Miller's Landing Resort. Pre-registration forms can be picked up at Miller's Landing Resort or be found at mytribasslake.com. Make checks payable to CEBF.

"In addition to the triathlon events, the day will include games, music, and fun for the whole family, so everyone of all ages are encouraged to attend," Waltner said.
