The 6th Annual Bitterroot Classic Triathlon will be August 27th. The race is centered around the Bitterroot Aquatic Center in Hamilton, on Kurtz Lane.
Organizers said the event is a sprint distance race, a 75-yard swim (15 laps in the Bitterroot Aquatic Center pool), a 20K Bike Run and a 5k Run. There will also be a children's triathlon.
The race maps are on-line at bitterrootclassictriathlon.com. There are some great photos from past events there!
The entry fee is $45 this year and all starts and finishes will be at the Aquatic Center. This race usually fills up fast, and entries opened May 2nd at the on-line site.
Volunteers are always needed! If you'd like to help, call Lynn at (406) 531-2684 or e-mail her at lynn@rmhmissoula.org.
