The Mini-Sprint Trail Triathlon took place on Saturday morning at Waterworks Park in Fairfield.

The event consisted of a 250 yard swim, a 6-mile bike ride, and 1.3 miles worth of running.

Swimming kicked off the event. Once out of the water the triathletes continued on by hopping on a bicycle and biking for six miles.

The triathletes either participated individually or as part of a relay team. Relay teams consisted of three people, one for each leg of the event. Individuals who felt that they were in good enough shape could challenge themselves by completing the triathlon on their own.

While biking each individual was required to wear a helmet as a safety precaution.

The winners of each one of the age groups is listed below.

If only I had known about this event, I would have participated. Was this in the Ledger before today, I don't recall any announcement. But thanks, it's great to know it exists here!
