Mark your calendar. August 15th 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 4 mile bike ride from the pipeline crossing on Quartz Lake Road to Quartz Lake and back 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 from the boat landing and around a buoy in 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, sponsored by Buffalo Center Drive-In. Feel free to bring any accouterments to the picnic you’d like, ie. Chips, cookies, etc.
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 $20 and includes a t-shirt. For more information and to register, please call John Sloan at (907)322-4391. Call soon to get a shirt in your size.
