Triathlon club opens registration for 2014 season

LACONIA — Lakes Region Triathlon Club (LRTC), a non-profit triathlon club based out of Laconia Athletic & Swim Club, has opened up registration for the 2014 season.

Included in a membership are group trainings with Tri Coach Suzan Ballmer of Breakaway Athletic Coaching; a club uniform to wear at races and camaraderie with a group of motivated, supportive people pursuing their triathlon goals.

Although members participate in races from throughout New England to the Nationals in Wisconsin; LRTC is a community minded organization that supports a variety of local fundraising efforts such as WLNH Childrens' Auction, The WOW Trail and had a strong presence in the inaugural Marshmallow Man. LRTC members also participate in duathlons, trial runs, marathons, road races, bicycle hill climbs and open water swims.

As a non-profit organization, LRTC relies upon membership dues and the support of local sponsors- MC Cycle & Sport, Laconia Athletic & Swim Club, Rowell's Sewer & Drain, Expanding Horizons and LRGHealthcare.

Off season trainings began Nov. 10, 2013. Registration is open through January 15, 2014. For more information on membership registration or becoming a sponsor go to www.lakesregiontriclub.com or contact Maureen Nix at 528-2203.
