Well, this is an interesting event posted by Big White Trailer Timing’s Jim Lang yesterday — a Country Triathlon that starts, most appropriately, at a place we country folk all call home — The Gem City Gun Club.
Here are all the details in amusingly cute country speak:
Date: Saturday, June 29, 2013 @ 4 p.m.
Event: 2 mile bike – 400 yard swim – 8 mile bike – 3 mile run – Country BBQ
So just what is a Country Triathlon?
Well pardner, it’ll all begin at Gem City Outdoors Club, a real pretty place out in the woods. You’ll start out on that bicycle of yours, long about a two mile ride to Dave’s Pond. Right there your gonna hop off your bike and go for a dip in the Pond ‘bout 400 yards or so, then get back up on your steed and ride eight more miles back to Gem City. You’ll corral that bike a yours then go for a three mile run through some right purty trails in those Gem City woods.
After that? Well, we’ll fix you up a right nice country barbecue, play some Hank Williams songs (and a few others as well) and pass out our hay bale awards.
The Country Triathlon sponsored by our friends at AXA Advisors and some other real nice folks and let me tell ya – there ain’t nothing quite like this here event. And all proceeds benefit that YMCA you got in your neighborhood and by gol’ there ain’t a finer organization in the land.
Registration is just $50 until June 25.
