The 2015 Bowling Green Sprint Triathlon will be held on Sunday August 23th starting at 8 am Central Standard Time. We are now in our 10th year of this event. We will again be starting from the Russell Aquatics Center in the Preston Miller Park in our 50 meter pool. The race will consist of a 400 meter pool swim, a 23 k (15 mile) bike route and a 5 k (3.1 mile) run. OUR 5K RUNNING COURSE IS NEW SINCE 2014, PROVIDING A HIGHER PERCENTAGE OF THE COURSE ON RUNNING TRAILS AND NOT CITY STREETS. This race is short enough to be a good beginner’s race, yet challenging enough for expert triathletes.
New features this year will include cash prizes for the top three overall finishers in the Men’s and Women’s Divisions ($250, $150, $100).We will also recognize the top finishing triathlon clubs in a team competition format.
This year’s race is expected to draw over 300 participants ranging from elite to professional level triathletes to novice and first time racers. Race divisions include Men's and Women's Divisions with age groups ranging from under 16 to 75 and over. We also welcome relay team entries with Men's, Women's and Mixed Divisions. The race also has a Wheelchair Division.
This event is produced by the Bowling Green A. M. Rotary Club, with proceeds going to the Rotary Club Scholarship Program. The major sponsors for this event included The Bowling Green Parks and Recreation Department, and Graves Gilbert Clinic.
The Duathlon will be a 1.6K (1 mile) Run / 23 K Bike / 5K Run
