CSCTriclub Announces the Second Annual First Try Triathalon

LINDEN, MI – The CSCTriclub, a group of local triathletes who are dedicated to bringing new athletes into the sport of Triathlon, will host The Second Annual First Try Triathlon June 23th, 2012 starting at 8:00 a.m at Clover Beach in the  Linden County Park, 15349 S. Linden Road, Linden.  All finishers will receive an Official Triathlon Medallion at the finish line.

The First Try Triathlon is a triathlon designed specifically for first timers. The distance is what we call a Super Sprint (half a sprint) and includes a 300-yard swim, a 9.1-mile bike and a two-mile run.

The concept of the First Try is to offer a race that gives you the experience of racing in a “real” triathlon without the intimidation factor.

The 300-yard swim is “out and back”, so if you can swim one and a half football fields, you can cover the distance.  The wave starts will allow enough people in the water with you to give you the feeling of what the triathlon swim is about, without the fear of someone swimming over your back.

The bike course is nine miles long and is mostly pancake flat with some small hills. There are four turns and the course will be heavily marshaled so you will know what to do. 

The tw0-mile run course is an “out and back” on the bike trail in Linden County Park.  You will run one mile, turn around and head back to finish your first real triathlon.
