Self-paced triathlon under way in Carson

Think you don’t have what it takes to finish a triathlon? Think again.

The Carson Aquatic Facility’s Self-Paced Triathlon is back. Keep your exercise program on track through the holiday season and accomplish something you never thought you could.

Like a regular triathlon, this individualized version involves three disciplines of exercise: swimming, biking and running. Participants choose the category (distances) they would like to enter based on their own schedules, strengths, goals and fitness level, and then have a full 40 days to accomplish that goal.

The triathlon will run now through Jan. 2. Categories offer a range of distance requirements to suit everyone’s needs and abilities.

Participants who reach their goal will receive a triathlon T-shirt. Cost is $15 per person.

For more information, call 887-2242 or stop by the Carson Aquatic Facility, 841 N. Roop St., to register.
