|Registrations being taken for new Indoor Triathlon on March 28|
This new event will have all the elements of standard triathlons such as body marking, wave starts, adrenaline rushes, volunteer support, and post-race celebration without the intimidating aspects of open water swims and crowded bike corrals. The Indoor Triathlon will take place beginning at 7 a.m. on Sunday, March 28, at 68's Indoor Sports, 11301 W. 88th St., Overland Park, and will be limited to about 100 participants. The event will consists of a 500-yard swim, followed by an 10-mile indoor bike ride on exercise bikes used for "spin" classes, and a three-mile run on the facility's indoor track. The triathlon is open to all individuals ages 18 and over. Search for the keyword "triathlon" to find this program in the JCPRD's Activities Catalog and online listings.
