Farm Island Triathlon to be Held Saturday

Pierre, S.D. - Farm Island’s Riverman/Riverwoman Sprint Triathlon will be held Saturday, Aug. 5. Registration opens at 6:30 a.m.

A mandatory rules meeting will be held at 7:40 a.m. Participants must be present at the rules meeting in order to compete.

The event costs $30 for an individual or $60 for a team. The fee includes a t-shirt.

"The course will be the same as it has been in the past," said event coordinator, Doug Schueller. "It will be just under a half-mile swim, an 18-mile bike on Highway 34 and a three-and-a-half mile run on the island trail."

The competition will be divided into several divisions with separate classes for men, women and teams.

The RiverKid triathlon will be held Aug. 12. There is a $10 entry fee, and the race is open to kids ages 6-14. Registration for the RiverKid triathlon will be taken until race time.
