Mark Harrison of Metro Brokers introduces the details of this year's TriathlON Friday competition to be held at Cherry Creek State Park on Friday, June1st, 2012. This is the 4th year for this popular event and registrations are picking up. Be sure to register early at www.MetroBrokersTriathlon.com.
It's a unique event, it's a Sprint Distance Triathlon, it has a half mile swim, 12 mile bike and a three mile run. It's a great beginner triathlon, it starts early in the season so it's a great warm up. It happens to be the week before the Denver Triathlon, so we are very excited, so please come out and see us.
All proceeds go to a great cause, Adaptive Adventures. They give the ability for disabled athletes, returning Veterans and children the ability to ski, bike, run and things that the every day person probably takes for granted.
We've had some great participants over the years, including three generations. It was really neat to see a grandson and a grandfather along with the father come across the finish line at the same time. We've had a blind athlete compete last year, we've had some premiere disabled and well bodied athletes that kick off the season.
It is Friday June 1st and we can't do this without our sponsors:
Lodo's Bar and Grill has been there since the beginning providing food and beverage after. As well as Heritage Title, WetSuitRental.com, Red Bull and Coors Brewing Company among others. There's a lot of opportunities, please come out and see us... it is a family event.
We'll see you there!
