Bass Lake Triathlon set for May 31

Registrations are currently being accepted for the fourth annual Bass Lake Classic Triathlon to be held Saturday, May 31.

"Bass Lake really is a great location for a race. Newcomers to the sport have loved coming here while triathlon veterans know the history here and have enjoyed coming back," said Jonathan Grinder, owner of Tucson Racing.

Over 500 athletes took part in the revived competition in 2013 and race organizers are expecting a sell out of 750 athletes this year.

Along with the Triathlon, there will be a 5K "Run for the Kids" walk/run. This year, the local Yosemite Gateway Association of Realtors will use the proceeds for mountain area high school scholarships.

Immediately following the race this year will be the Michelob Ultra Awards Party with a bluegrass band and a barbecue lunch put on by the Bass Lake Lions Club.
