2018 APOA Sprint Triathlon to Benefit Special Olympics
The competitive division is for those athletes who want the feel of racing each other.
Competitors will share a swim lane and start first. The sport division will start second and is
for those wanting an individual swim lane and are racing to do their best. This division is recommended for those enjoying his or her first triathlon and anyone wanting a low pressure
environment. The team division will follow the sport division and can accommodate two or three athletes who divide and conquer the course. This is a good option for those having to adapt to injuries.
