Do you like to swim, bike, and run? Do you like to help raise money for a worthy cause? Then why not participate in the 14th annual Emily Schindler Memorial Scholarship Triathlon.
Never done a triathlon before? The “sprint” length distances are perfect for first time triathletes. This year’s triathlon will be held on Saturday, April 18th. Each course takes place at the Severna Park Community Center pool and the B&A Trail. The triathlon can be completed individually or by teams of 2 or 3 people.
Sprint triathlon: (800 yard swim, 9 mile bike, 3 mile run)
Flamingo Feat: (1600 yard swim, 18 mile bike, 6 mile run)
The recreational triathlon was established to benefit the Emily Schindler Memorial Scholarship which awards several college bound swimmers scholarships each year. To date, nearly $51,000 has been awarded to 86 swimmers. Emily began swimming competitively when she was 9 years old yet, she placed her friendships first and focused on having a “best time” rather than getting a “best time”. Her spirit prevails at the triathlon each year as many friends and neighbors come together to honor her memory and for many participate in their first triathlon and have their best time!
Don’t delay, the early registration discount ends on March 18th.
