About This Activity

Plunge Pedal & Plod is coming back for the second year at its new course at the Triangle Aquatic Center and Cary Towne Center.  We encourage athletes of all ages, skill levels, and abilities to come enjoy our race and with four different courses there is something for everyone, including novices, experts, teams, and families!  All athletes will get to swim in the Triangle Aquatic Center's olympic-length pool and bike and run around Cary Towne Center mall on a closed course on a beautiful Sunday morning.  

All proceeds and donations for this race go to support community health programs, swim safety classes, and fitness education organized by Fit & Able Productions, Inc. and its community partners.
