According to Missy Dragan, Captain Thurmonds Challenge has always been a great event for the area and the Town of Thurmond was looking for a way to extend the weekend. We feel there are a lot of individuals, and maybe families, that would like to participate in a triathlon but need something that is more beginner friendly.
Registration will be held beginning at 9:30 am in Thurmond at the Dun Glen Day use area on Sunday, August 4. Pre-registration is a must if participants are planning on using event duckies provided by ACE Adventure Resort. For more information on the Thurmond Triathlon email [email protected]
