Summit on the Park community recreation center in Canton, MI will host its first annual “Conquer the Summit” Indoor Triathlon on Sunday, November 16, 2014, beginning at 7 a.m.
Participants in the Indoor Triathlon will complete a 20-minute swim in the aquatic center, 20-minute ride on an upright stationary bike, and a 20-minute treadmill run with 10-minute transition times between each event. Participant scoring and placement will be determined by the total distance covered in each 20-minute discipline, with medals given to the overall top male and female finishers and top finisher within each age group.
“Whether you want to try a triathlon for the first time or just mix up your training, the Indoor Triathlon is a unique opportunity to stay active during the fall months,” said Aquatics, Health and Wellness Specialist Brad Chiasson. “We look forward to a Sunday of friendly competition and fun!”
On the day of the triathlon, heats will begin at 7 a.m. and run every 30 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.
The event is the first of its kind at 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 November 10, 2014 at 5 p.m.
