And — they’re off! The annual Try-Athlon for Women and Children a hit
By David F. Rooney
The annual Try-Athlon challenges local women and children to walk three kilometres or run five, then cycle 15 km and, finally, swim of aqua-jog 125 metres at the Aquatic Centre.
There are more than a few guys in town who’d be hard-pressed to accomplish that but 93 women and children between the ages of six and 61 came out for this year’s event on Sunday and, judging by the expressions on their faces — at the start at least — they were keen to have a good time doing it.
Organizer Bex Reid-Parkin was very pleased with the turnout and with the cash raised — $1,515, all of which went to assist the local Breast Cancer Support Group.
