The EPAC Tri is an event for the whole family. Like 2012, this years event will feature a full Adult Sprint Triathlon (participants must be 18+), youth races for children 7-14 and a 15+ open event for teens and novice adults who would just like to give it a TRI.
EPAC is also happy to announce that PA Runners, a timing chip company, will be utilized this year in ensuring the accuracy of our athletes triathlon times!
While our Adult Sprint does include a road bike course, the adult run and all other races are contained entirely on the East Pennsboro school campus. The swim portion of the race will be held in the indoor, 25 yard, 6-lane middle school pool.
All Athletes who complete the course will receive a custom EPAC TRI medal at the finish line. Youth races will be grouped by the following ages: 7-8, 9-10, 11-12 & 13-14 with the top three finishers awarded place ribbons, that attach to the back of the medal.
