Well, we are back for the 4th Annual Ellington Sprint Triathlon in 2012. It was great turnout for 2011, over 200 racers joined in the event as well as tons of fans to cheer everyone on!!! Thanks to all the volunteers, Ellington & Crystal Lake EMS, Police & Fire Departments, Platt Timing Systems and most of all, the Ellington Parks & Recreation Department for all their support.
. Registration will open on March 1, 2011 & the fee will be $70.00; we would like to increase our donation to the Ellington Fuel Fund. In 2009, we donated $2,500 to the fund; in 2010 and 2011, we achieved our goal of $4,000 for the Ellington Fuel Fund and $500 for Club Athletic Programs in Ellington!
The race will take place in the beautiful countryside of Ellington, CT in the Crystal Lake region. The swim will consist of a bouy to bouy 1/4 mile swim in Crystal Lake followed by a 13-mile road bike on the back country roads of Ellington & Tolland. The final stage of the race will be a 3.1 mile run around Crystal Lake with a glorious finish back at the lake.
This race is for all triathletes from beginner to advanced and kids 12 years and above. We are looking to host a fun event that brings an athletic challenge, raise funds for a noble cause and hopefully create some lasting friendships through the sport of triathlon.
We are extending the maximum amount of racers to 220 in 2011. Although, this is increased from 2010, we will still host a high quality and safe race that all ages & abilities can enjoy. Thanks for all your support and we look forward to seeing you on race day in July 2011!
