Soldiers & Sailor's Memorial Park, Millheim, PA, 16854, Centre County, Pennsylvania, US

Start Date

06/26/2021

Activities: Triathlon

Nestled in the geographic center of the Keystone, our Penns Valley area makes the perfect backdrop for your early to mid-season sprint triathlon or aqua-bike. This event helps to raise funds for, and awareness of, the Millheim Pool (and it's programs): a non-profit organization dedicated to serving rural central PA. Outstanding opportunity for first time triathletes or veterans looking for a solid course in a beautiful setting with a supportive vibe and outstanding volunteers.

Our venue offers three distance options for racers 14 years and older:
1.) a standard Sprint Distance triathlon (about 18 miles total); 

2.) a Super Sprint Distance triathlon (about 10 miles total); 

3.) an Aqua-Bike (swim & bike, no run, about 15.5 miles total).

 

Featuring a 300 yard pool swim, a 15+ mile bike course meandering along Penns Creek and punctuated by a few moderately challenging hill climbs, the event wraps up with a mostly flat, out and back 5K run.

The Aqua-Bike eliminates the run, while the Super Sprint Triathlon cuts all three disciplines in about half.

The Sprint Distance can be waged solo or as a (2) or (3) person team. The Super Sprint is a solo event. The Aqua-Bike is a solo event.

Awards are presented after all participants have crossed the finish line: top male and female finishers; top three finishers in each 5 year age category; and the top three 2 and 3 person teams.

Participants receive water, post race refreshments, and the first 120 registrants will receive a useful and durable, flame-resistant, high-heat tolerant, back-country-worthy 16oz SiliPint featuring this year's Penns Valley Triathlon logo.

With the exception of your chip timing, through Falcon Race Timing, all the proceeds from this race go directly to our community's pool where youth can learn to swim or learn to compete. We volunteers stage this race so you can log a rewarding day, and together we keep a valuable resource up and running. Thank you in advance for supporting our pool!

The race options at this event are open to participants 14 years and older.
**Participants age 13 and Under will require adult signature of waiver AND the youth athlete must be accompanied on the road (bike & run) courses at all times by an adult also registered for the event.** 

Online registration closes Tuesday, June 22 at midnight.
