The 2015 Pomeroy Inn & Suites Fort St. John Triathlon and Duathlon is just around the corner as the event is slated for June 28. As of last night 46 people have registered to take part, and the deadline to enter your name is midnight on June 21.

The triathlon can be done as an individual or relay event and has two lengths. There’s a short course for juniors (ages 12-17) and adults that consists of a 300 metre swim, an 11 kilometre bike ride, and a three kilometre run. The long course is a 750 metre swim, a 26 kilometre bike ride, and a six kilometre run.

Those wanting to enter the duathlon will be faced with a three kilometre run, a 26 kilometre bike ride, and a second three kilometre run.

Organizers are looking for volunteers to count laps in the pool and marshall the bike and run course. Anyone wanting to volunteer their time are encouraged to email Sandy McDonald at sandra.mcdonald@me.com.
