Spring Sprint Triathlon April 17; clinic every Tuesday until event

The first annual Spring Sprint Triathlon is scheduled April 17.

Because it is early season, the first segment of the event, a 500-yard swim, will be held in the indoor pool at San Juan Island Fitness. This will be followed by a 12-mile bike ride and a 3.1-mile run, both outside, rain or shine.

The event is perfect for first-timers wanting to see the benefits of cross-training and for seasoned veterans who want to put their training to an early test. In conjunction with the triathlon, San Juan Island Fitness will be conducting a triathlon clinic. The clinic is being held every Tuesday until the race.

Race entry is $40, $30 for club members. The clinic is free to club members and $90 for non-members.

“We’re very excited to put on an event long overdue in Friday Harbor,” said Paul Hopkins, race director. "We have an excellent facility and staff with combined experience that makes this program a great value.”
