Mark your calendar. August 9th is the date set for a 60+ triathlon. You need to be over 60 to participate. This is a bike, hike and paddle event designed especially for the slightly older set.
The event will begin at 11:00 AM with a 2 mile bike ride from the pipeline crossing on Quartz Lake Road to Lost lake Campground. From there you’ll hike the trail (app. 1.5 miles)to Quartz Lake via Glatfelder Cabin. To finish the event you’ll paddle between the boat landings along the shore of Quartz Lake in a kayak or canoe.
This is a non-competitive event with an emphasis on fun, exercise, camaraderie and personal satisfaction. A picnic at the Quartz Lake shelter will follow.
You’ll need your own bike and walking shoes but kayaks and canoes will be provided. If you’d like to use your own kayak or canoe, please bring it to Quartz Lake boat launch prior to the beginning of the event.
Registration fee is $10 and includes a t-shirt. For more information and to register, please call John Sloan at 907-322-4391. Registration closes Wednesday August 6th.
