The City of Portsmouth will host the 2nd annual "SOMC TRI for Your LIFE" brought to you by Southern Ohio Medical Center, as the organization seeks to build on wellness initiatives and grow the multisport community within the greater Southern Ohio region.
The SOMC Sprint Triathlon will take place on August 2425 in Portsmouth, Ohio. The event will begin on Saturday and will feature a youth triathlon held on the campus of Shawnee State University. The event will kick-off with a "Little Bear Run" for those children who just want to show off their skills. The youth triathlon will begin in the pool and progress to the bike course alongside the murals of the floodwall that depict the history of the community. The youth run will cap off the event and will occur through the campus green.
On Sunday the Adult TRI will begin with a brief dip in the SOMC LIFE Center pool and then progress to a 10 mile bike course that features a closed land and the very flat and fast Route 23, and challenging short loop through the beautiful Feurt Hill neighborhood. The run will feature a rolling 5k course through the streets of historic Portsmouth.
