Starting at 7 a.m., participants in the Indoor Triathlon will complete a 10-minute swim in the Aquatic Center, 30-minute ride on an upright stationary bike, and a 20-minute treadmill run with transition times between each event. Participant scoring and placement will be determined by the total distance covered in each discipline, with medals given to the overall top male and female finishers and top finisher within each age group.
“Our Indoor Triathlon is a unique opportunity for individuals to test their physical stamina by swimming, biking and running in a fun and challenging environment,” said Aquatics, Health and Wellness Specialist Brad Chiasson. “We look forward to hosting this friendly competition and determining who this year’s winners will be.”
On the day of the triathlon, heats will begin at 7 a.m. and run every 40 minutes after that, and participants must check in 30 minutes prior to their registered start time. Competitors can select their preferred heat start time at registration, and heats will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Participants must provide their own swimsuits, swim caps, goggles, biking and running clothing and towels. Stiff-soled or cycling shoes are recommended. Locker rooms will be available to store belongings during the event and competitors must bring their own locks.
This event is the second Indoor Triathlon to be held at the Summit on the Park, located at 46000 Summit Parkway in Canton, MI. Fees to participate are $35 for Summit members, $40 for Canton residents and $45 for non-residents, and the deadline to register is Sunday, March 13, 2016 at 5 p.m.
