Triathletes gear up for Bighorn Canyon event this Saturday at Horseshoe Bend BY PATrl CARPENTER Athletes are readying themselves to run, bike and swim at Horseshoe Bend this weekend. The Bighorn Canyon Triathlon will take place in conjunction with the annual Friends of Big- horn Lake Celebration on Saturday, July 19, at 7:30 a.m. This will be the fifth year for the triathlon. Race organizer Ben Zeller said he is expecting athletes from all experience levels to participate, includ- ing some who will be partic- ipating in a triathlon for the first time, as well as some who have won the eventin the past. The popular event grew from 26 participants in its first year to more than 130 last year. Based on ear- ly registrations, Zeller said he expects around the same number of participants as last year. Zeller said volunteers are always needed to help at the triathlon. He said those wishing to help should report to the race site at around 6 a.m. The event usually ends at around 11 a.m. and he encourages vol- unteers to reward them- selves with a free boat ride on the lake afterward pro- videcl by members of the Friends of Bighorn Lake and other volunteers. Boat rides are expected to begin at 8 a.m. and will contin- ue through most of the day, weather permitting. Zeller said the swim start will be staggered like last year to allow a bit of el- bowroom for the swimmers at the start of the race. He is also planning to rope off the transition area again this year, so that spectators don't get in the way of the triathletes as they switch gear and transition from one leg of the race to the next. The event will include divisions for men, wom- en and individual youth, as well as teams for adults and kids under the age of 16. He said there will also be age divisions for both men and women this year. The youth division will have two categories, in- cluding one category for youth up to 13 years of age and another category for youth ages 13-16. The youth divisions will include a 400-yard swim, a six-mile bike ride, followed by a 1.5-mile run. He said though the adult race was advertised as an 800-yard swim, a 12-mile bike ride and a three-mile run, recent GPS measure- ments indicate the course is actually 10.6 miles for the bike portion and 3.2 miles for the run. Zeller said the cours- es for the swim, bike and run will be the same as in previous years. He said the water level is now full in Horseshoe Bend. The registration dead- line for the event is July 18 at 11:59 p.m. For more in- formation or an entry form, go to bhlaketriathlon.webs. com or call 254-0344.
