500m Swim 2.5k Run

Date: Saturday, August 19
Time: 9am
Location: Britannia Beach  Map
Registration: Please RSVP on the message board
Cost: Free to OTC members


It's so simple when you leave the bike out of it! That's not to say it isn't hard. Our second aquathon of the season features a 500m swim followed by 2.5k run.  If that sounds fairly easy to you experienced triathletes, then come try it!  Plus, we're going to follow through this year on a long held threat: those wearing wetsuits can only put them on once the gun goes to start the race :)  We chose the distances as an even challenge so neither runners nor swimmers have an advantage.


I love that it was free and love how simple it was - all I brought was shoes and a swim suit!


Whoa, that was hard! There was no time on the bike to recover from the swim. 40 minutes all out - sweet :)
