Triathlon in Central South Dakota Scheduled for Saturday in Pierre
PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — Triathletes will converge in central South Dakota on Saturday for the Farm Island's Riverman/Riverwoman Sprint Triathlon.
Event coordinator Jessica Carr says the competition's course will be the same as in previous years. It will involve just under a half-mile swim, an 18-mile bike ride on Highway 34 and a three-and-a-half mile run on the island trail.
The triathlon will be divided into several divisions with separate categories for men, women and teams.
A triathlon for children ages 6 to 14 is scheduled for Aug. 8.
