Young Athletes Swim, Bike, And Run At PCR's 'TRY-athalon'
The City of Unalaska's Department of Parks, Culture, and Recreation (PCR) held its first youth "TRY-athlon" on Saturday, Sept. 14, starting at the aquatics center.
The race was designed to help athletes between kindergarten and twelfth grade practice all three disciplines of a classic triathlon. Eight racers participated.
The "youth" division racers began with a 150-yard swim, followed that with a four-mile bike ride, and finished with a one-mile run down East Broadway Ave. There was also a "tiny tikes" division, in which athletes completed about half of those distances.
"I am proud of everyone who participated in the event," said PCR Coordinator Chris DiGiro. "It is called the 'TRY-athlon' for a reason, and it was great to see everyone try their best, especially with rainy and windy weather."
DiGiro also thanked the volunteers and PCR employees who helped run the event, as well as the aquatics center for hosting.
