Press Release: United Way Triathlon
United Way of McPherson County’s Annual Triathlon will be held on August 20 th at Waterfront Park in McPherson. Registration begins at 6:30 am, with the race starting promptly at 8:00 am.
The Race consists of a 200 meter swim, 7 mile bike ride and 2 mile run. Participants may register as an individual or as a team. Fees are $50 for an individual or $90 for a team.
Last year was the inaugural “Corporate Challenge”, with friendly competition amongst companies. The winner gets possession of the Traveling Trophy which is currently held by Pfizer.
We look forward to having repeat racers as well as new faces. Many families join together to compete as a team.
It takes approximately 75 volunteers to ensure the safety of the participants. So, if you don’t want to race, but could help out with the event, we would really appreciate the assistance.
All proceeds will benefit United Way of McPherson County, which is committed to driving COLLABORATIVE COMMUNITY CHANGE through the development of programs designed to improve health, education and income. Thank you for your support!
