APOA Sprint Triathlon


Event Date

Sat, May 3, 2014

About This Activity

The competitive division is for those athletes
who want the feel of racing each other. 
Competitors will share a swim lane and start first.  The sport division will start second and is
for those wanting an individual swim lane and are racing to do their best.  This division is recommended for those
enjoying his or her first triathlon and anyone wanting a low pressure
environment.  The team division will
follow the sport division and can accommodate two or three athletes who divide
and conquer the course.  This is a good
option for those having to adapt to injuries.

Entry Fee: A minimum donation of $50 per participant will collected and APOA will pass the donation on to the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics on May 17, 2014.  Special Olympics athletes are welcome to compete without making a donation.  Ironkids minimum donation is $25 per participant.
