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.
A meeting for volunteers will be held at Jake’s Pizza April 24, at 7 p.m. Anyone who is interested in helping out with the triathlon is encouraged to join Dan and Dayn at the meeting. Volunteers are always appreciated.
