COUNTDOWN TO THE JCPRD WOMEN'S TRIATHLON
TWO GREAT TRIATHLONS TO CONCLUDE THE SEASON
Johnson County Park & Recreation District is bringing to our community two triathlons which will conclude the local youth triathlon and women’s triathlon season. Do not miss these great events.
The JCPRD U Kids Triathlon in Partnership with Charlie’s House is on August 26, 2017 at Kill Creek Park. This incredible event is open to all youth ages 6 through 14. This year’s event will have numerous perks for the entire family including:
- Free Chris Cakes pancakes for all participants. Fees for others are as follows: $5 for adults, $3 for children 10 and under, free for children under 2
- Lots of fun activities for all ages such as:
Free face painting during entire event
Star Wars characters on site
Safety demos including how to properly use a fire extinguisher
All athletes that cross the finish line will receive a super hero
Even though they lost their title sponsor, in 2017 the Johnson County Park & Recreation District will attempt to keep the local women’s triathlon active by offering the JCPRD Women's Triathlon on September 9, 2017. It is important that women register and support this event to keep it viable. The JCPRD Women’s Triathlon aspires to bring women of all ages together as a community by offering a supportive, energetic and empowering environment for females pursuing a healthy and active lifestyle.
Kill Creek Park serves as a gorgeous backdrop for this great event. Participants are treated to a swim course in the calm waters of Kill Creek Lake. From there, they will cycle on the a flat to sometimes rolling bike course in western Johnson County. Then back to the park for the run surrounded by woodlands and waterways on the leisure trail in the park.
Women have the opportunity to participate in the exciting Super Sprint (swim 200 meters, bike 4 mile, and run 2 miles) or the Sprint Triathlon (500-meter swim, 10.6-mile bike located outside of the park, and 3.1-mile (5K) trail run). Or those who prefer not to swim, there is a Duathlon course. The Sprint Triathlon and Duathlon are open for teams, which is a great way to get the entire family or neighborhood involved.
We invite you to join TRiKC in supporting both of these fun and inspirational events!
