Registration Open for Farm Island Triathlon in South Dakota
PIERRE, S.D. – Registration is open for Farm Island’s Riverman/Riverwoman Triathlon scheduled for Aug. 4. The event was not held last year because of Missouri River flooding in the Pierre-Fort Pierre area.
“The course will be the same as it has been in the past,” said event coordinator Jessica Callahan. “It will be 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 competition will be divided into several divisions with separate classes for men, women and teams.
Registration postmarked by July 20 is $20 a person, and $40 per team (comprised of any age men, women or youth). Early registration comes with a free T-shirt. After July 21, registration is $30 a person and $60 per team.
The RiverKid triathlon will be held Aug. 11. There is a $10 entry fee, and the race is open to kids ages 6-14. Registration for the RiverKid triathlon will be taken until race time.
