LQ Triathlon coming soon— consider volunteering!

PowerPoint PresentationBy Aline Zimmer
Coming up fast is the annual Lake Quivira Triathlon on Sat., Sept. 2. There’s still time to put together a team or go it alone to complete a 500-meter swim, bike twice around the lake and run a 5K. The morning starts with the National Anthem, and the excitement continues to build with a race announcer, music and cold bottles of water at the finish, with prizes awarded for the top finishers. After you are cheered to the finish, enjoy a reviving pancake breakfast with fellow athletes and friends.
The event is open to all members and their guests, ages 16 and older. Guidelines and entry fees are at www.lakequiviratriathlon.com. Friends and guests can purchase tickets for the pancake breakfast at the event for just $5 for adults (16 and over) and $3 for kids.
If you want to participate without racing, consider volunteering your time. You’ll get a free shirt, all the pancakes you can eat, and the fun of cheering for your friends and neighbors. The triathlon can’t take place without volunteers, and our amazing community rises to the occasion each year. Volunteers help on race day to hand out water, keep an eye out for traffic, set up and decorate and much more.
Hope to see you there!
