The Pioneer Sprint Triathlon will begin April 26, 2014 at 12:45 for paratriathletes and 1:00 pm for age groupers and offers a 300 yard swim in the heated indoor PORTA pool, a beautiful 13 mile bike ride on a rolling and flat prairie road and the chance to run 3.1 miles through picturesque Petersburg. The run will take you past century old architectural gems, up and down the streets of Petersburg and through a historic cemetery. All ages are welcome and Clydesdales, Athenas and teams are encouraged to enter. An awards ceremony will follow after the last runner crosses the finish line. Steve OConnor is the race director and can be reached by email at [email protected]
