2014 Selah Beginner Triathlon
Why Not Give it a Try?

Saturday July 19th, 2014 was the 2nd Annual “Selah Beginner Triathlon” hosted this year by Selah Adventures.
The event started out at 8 AM at the Selah Pool in Wixson Park where beginner athletes had to swim 8 complete laps down and back equaling a 1/4 mile swim.
Next was a bike ride from the Wixson Park to River Ridge Golf Course and back. This was a 3 mile route which most did twice to get the complete 6 miles in.
The last part was a 3 mile walk/run from Wixson Park up to North 4th Street off of West Goodlander Road and then back to Wixson Park.
Most everyone seemed to have a good time giving it a try. One guy did the whole event in a bomb suit.
This event went great thanks to our sponsors and volunteers:
River Ridge supplied cold water for the athletes as they came by the golf course and King’s Row supplied cold water at Wixson Park. Selah Cub Scout Pack 276 and their families helped with the set up and check points.
