Challenge Penticton Adds A Half Distance Race
ChallengePenticton Canada will offer a half distance individual event in addition to its full distance race (individual and relay), on Sunday Aug. 24, 2014. The course for the half will, like the full distance race, be a single loop course. The half distance race entry is set at $350 plus tax and will be capped at 600 athletes while the full distance race is limited to 1,500 individuals and only 200 relay teams. Registration and more information about both events can be found at challengepenticton. com.
“Without a doubt, Challenge Penticton Canada is a triathlete’s dream experience – it’s more than just a one- day achievement,” said Jeff Symonds, the inaugural Challenge Penticton Canada Champion. “I am proud of my hometown celebrating the sport of triathlon and creating races for everyone – from the legendary full course to the relay and now the Challenge Half.”
