“Tri It Get Fit” is the PERFECT location to kick off your 2013 triathlon season or “tri” your first triathlon! A triathlon may seem overwhelming but if you can swim, bike and run a short distance YOU CAN DO IT! The triathlon is open to youth of all ages (starting at 5 years old) and adults and includes a closed course run, followed by a scenic bike around Temple Terrace Country Club Golf Course and finishing with a heated pool swim at the Temple Terrace Recreation Center.
We are also adding a NEW EVENT for the community this year--a 1 mile FUN Run/Walk Event for those individuals who would like to participate in a fun, healthy event and support our efforts without committing to a triathlon!!
Join us to celebrate youth fitness and “Tri It Get Fit”. Troop 758 will be holding several training sessions in March and April for youth and adults to train and become familiar with how to transition during a triathlon. Training dates will be sent via email and will be available on our website.
Girl Scout Troop 758 would like to invite you to participate in Girl Scout Troop 758’s 5th Annual “Tri It Get Fit” Triathlon at the Temple Terrace Recreation Center, Saturday, May 4th, 2013. Last year we had over 130 participants and hope to well exceed this number this year. Girl Scout Troop #758 is hosting this event to promote youth fitness and to raise awareness of the fastest growing participatory sport in the world, the triathlon. This year will continue our component of the race for physically challenged and special olympic athletes.
The troop will be obtaining Event Sponsors to cover the costs of the triathlon (renting the Temple Terrace Recreation Center, hiring police officers, etc.). The proceeds from the triathlon will be deposited into Girl Scout Troop #758’s treasury, a portion of which will benefit several local community projects including the “Miracle for Megan Garrett Irrevocable Trust”. To learn more about Megan’s touching story go to www.miracleformegan.com.
Troop 758 has donated $13,000 of their proceeds from the past four triathlons to Megan Garrett's Trust and $2800 to "Clouds of Hope" for the All Accessible playground in Temple Terrace. For more information about "Clouds of Hope", please visit www.cloudsofhope.com.
