The second annual FCCB triathlon is coming up! This will be a very low-key, informal, free, triathlon held in Alameda on Sat., Sept. 2 at 9 am. Participate in all three legs (swim, bike, run) or just one or two legs, OR grab a friend or family member to team up with for the different sections. It starts and ends at the Encinal boat ramp and entails a 1/4 mile swim in shallow water, a 13 mile bike ride along the shoreline, and a 2.5 mile run along the Bay. Anyone is welcome, but minors must be accompanied during the swim by an adult, or be wearing a swim buoy with an adult agreeing to act as their lifeguard. This will have a do-it-yourself spirit: there are no official sponsors, chip timing, professional lifeguards, etc. We’ll end with a potluck picnic to celebrate.
If you aren’t up for swimming, biking, or running, join us to cheer on the athletes, enjoy the scenery, camaraderie and potluck picnic. Email Ann Naffziger if you are planning to participate and she’ll send you a map of the route: [email protected].
