Welcome to the KPC Newspaper In Education Sprint Triathlon, co-hosted by KPC Media Group Inc., City of Kendallville, Cole Center YMCA and the Kendallville Rotary Club.
The 5th Annual KPC sprint-distance triathlon is set for Saturday, July 19, 2014, with race-time at 7:30 a.m. (Waves group at 7:15 a.m.) 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 swim and run are laid-out in a spectator-friendly fashion, and the park setting, includes childrens play equipment to entertain younger spectators.
Co-sponsors include KPC Media Group Inc., Kendallville Kiwanis, the City of Kendallville and the Cole Family YMCA.
