Planning for the first annual St. James Triathlon is underway. The event will take place June 23, with registration beginning at 6:30 a.m. and the race beginning at 8 a.m.


Kern and Besel are putting together a course for the triathlon which will be good for beginners and challenging for seasoned veterans. The race will begin with a 150 to 200 yard swim in the St. James outdoor pool, followed by a 13 mile bike ride and finishing with a 5k run.


As with any community event, volunteers are extremely helpful. Anyone interested in volunteering or donating can help by contacting Dayn Besel at 507-327-6719 or Dan Kern at 507-621-0324.
