The 9th Annual KPC sprint-distance triathlon is set for Saturday, July 21, 2018, with race-time at 7:30 a.m. (Waves group at 7:15 a.m.)
The KPC Newspaper In Education Sprint Triathlon is the July sprint triathlon you don’t want to miss! Located about one-half hour drive north of Fort Wayne, and designed by experienced triathletes, the course is both beginner friendly and a competitive experience for more advanced triathletes. You will appreciate the shady park setting, friendly local volunteers, race organization, excellent safety provisions, post- race care and healthy food after your finish.
The USAT-sanctioned race is co-hosted by KPC Media Group Inc., the City of Kendallville, Cole Center YMCA and the Kendallville Rotary Club.
This competitive but shorter sprint-distance race is great for both veteran and novice athletes. The race is staged at shady, beautiful Bixler Lake Park in Kendallville, Indiana, just north of Fort Wayne. The 500-meter lake swim is followed by a just-under 13-mile bike race and closing with a 5-K cross-country style run. The run includes a stretch in and around the authentic windmills of the Mid-America Windmill Museum before a shady and spectator-friendly finish in the park. Two and three person teams are welcome; the race also includes a youth division for teens age 15 – 17.
The duathlon and 5K Trail Race start on the beach at 7:30 a.m. following the same run and bike courses as the Triathlon.
The swim and run are laid-out in a spectator-friendly fashion, and the park setting includes children’s play equipment to entertain younger spectators.
Pre-race Clinic: For those new to the triathlon sport, or just wanting to refresh on key points, the KPC Triathlon offers a free clinic at the Cole Family YMCA in Kendallville, with an experienced triathlon coach, athlete, and fitness trainer present. This year the clinic is scheduled for Sunday, July 8th, at 3 o’clock p.m. Topics include basic rules & safety; transition, gear and bike race pointers; and nutrition & hydration.
