Indoor Triathlon Returns to OPC!
Rochester, MI: On January 21, 2023, test your fitness at OPC’s Indoor Triathlon! This fun, challenging and rewarding competition will take place inside the OPC, utilizing the facility’s extensive fitness equipment and amenities. The triathlon is open to the public, and athletes of all levels, so grab a friend and start your training! Participants can compete individually, or as a team with each member tackling their favorite event.
Athletes will compete in 20-minute intervals of running, biking, and swimming, with awards given based on age groups. Heats begin at 10:00AM and will continue throughout the afternoon. This is an excellent opportunity to jump start your fitness in the new year!
Jane Evans, a regular OPC Fitness & Aquatics participant, and lifeguard at the facility, is looking forward to the event and has discovered the many benefits of training: “I signed up for the OPC Triathlon because I have done similar events in the past and think it’s a great way to get an hour workout in with some fun competition! It will also motivate me to run, bike and swim more prior to the event. It’s a great healthy way to start off the New Year and it supports a wonderful organization!”
Event timers will track each leg of the race as participants complete each portion at their own pace. Fees for individuals are $40 for OPC members and $50 for non-OPC members. Teams are $30 per person for one event and $40 per person for two. No gender restrictions will be made for those competing on teams of two or more.
