Youth triathlon coming to Bass Lake.

The Third Annual My Tri Triathlon will be held at 7:30 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 12, at Miller’s Landing Resort at Bass Lake.

The swim-bike-run event for ages 5-17, is sponsored by the Chawanakee Children’s Educational Foundation, and benefits art and sports enrichment programs at area schools.

Depending on age, the race consists of three divisions: Dash ( 50 yard swim/two-mile bike/0.5 mile run), Sprint (100 yard swim/four-mile bike/one mile run), and Ace (200 yard swim/eight-mile bike/two-mile run).

Last year, 48 sponsors, more than 300 spectators, and 80 race day volunteers supported the event, and the more than 100 children who participated.

Sponsors are being sought for this year’s event. Sponsorships will go towards race promotion, permits and traffic control, and will help keep participation costs low for families. Sponsorships range from $50 to $1,000.

Earlybird registration for the races is $25 through Aug. 28.
