Description:
The Center Recreation Beginner Triathlon is held each year at the Sand Dunes Swimming Pool in Hooper, Colorado.  The philosophy of the event is to celebrate the accomplishments of all triathletes who participate.  Participants are given a T-Shirt, a goody-bag, breakfast (after the event) and first timers receive a medal upon completion.  Awards are not given for finishing in the fastest time, as the celebration for competing is left at the personal level.  Finishers can also choose a special someone to hang their medal on them when they complete the event.  
Course Information:

  • The course requires a 500 meter swim in a hot springs pool (temperature usually around 95 degrees).
  • A 12 mile out and back bike ride on paved roads.
