081013TirathLOON: 3X Triathloon (200)

MOULTONBOROUGH —Registration is currently open for the Sixth Annual TriathLOON sponsored by Holland Hill Studio for Yoga and Fitness. This year's race takes place on Sunday, August 11 at 7 a.m. at Long Island Beach.

The course includes a very easy and shallow 1/4 mile swim, a hilly 13 mile bike and a shady 3 mile run along the Moutonborough Neck pathway. Participants are encouraged to try all three events, but can choose to do one or two or relay the race. This is a perfect race for athletes wanting to warm up before the larger area triathlons or for newbies looking to get experience with a multi-sport race in a friendly, non-competitive atmosphere.

Pre-registration is strongly encouraged and will be rewarded with a discounted race charge of $30. Registration will be $40 on the day of the race. Kids 12 and under can participate for $10 and can complete as much of the course as they feel comfortable. Whoopie pies are presented at the end of the race for all pre-registered athletes.

To register call Holland Hill Studio at 476-2476 or send a check made out to "Holland Hill Studio" to 97 Holland Street, Moultonborough, NH 03254. For more information, visit hollandhillstudio.com.
