Triathlon registration will end on Wednesday

WHEELING – The 2014 Faith in Action Caregivers Triathlon and Duathlon will be held July 12 at Wheeling Jesuit University.

Registration ends at 5 p.m. July 9, and registration forms can be picked up at the Faith in Action Caregivers office located at 38 N. Fourth St., Martins Ferry, or downloaded from the website at www.faithinactionwheeling.org. Participants also may register online at www.active.com.

The triathlon consists of a 400-meter swim in the indoor pool at the McDonough Center, a 25K bike course and a 5K run. The duathlon begins with a 3K run instead of the swim and completes the same bike and 5K run course. Participants can enter as individuals in age, weight and gender competition categories. Teams of two or three athletes can compete on relay teams in a variety of competition categories. The race begins at 7:30 a.m. July 12. There will be no race day registration.

The race benefits Faith in Action and will provide services such as escorted transportation, shopping, errands, chores, visiting, telephone reassurance and respite for family caregivers.
