ABOUT THIS EVENT:

As the name implies, the focus is on “trying” rather than winning, on camaraderie rather than competition, on personal challenge rather than place of finish.  Assemble a team of two or three people. Run, paddle, and bike your way to the finish! Or, if you feel energetic, complete all three legs of the event as a solo participant. The landscape of the park makes this a great spectator event too!  

 

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Running a mixture of park roads and trails around the perimeter of the lake for 5 kilometers. Paddle around temporary markers in the lake for approximately 1.75 miles. Bike on hard top and dirt roads in and around the park for 8.0 miles. All routes will remain the same as in recent years. The event includes at 5K stand-alone option. Runners will start at the same time and location as the TRYathlon participants and follow the same running course.  While the event has always encouraged youth and families to participate, now even more youth categories will be offered to reward the younger competitors in the 5K Run.
