Step Outdoors TRYathlon & 5K – Wellsboro, PA
September 18 @ 10:00 am
The Step Outdoors TRYathlon, hosted at Hills Creek State Park, is an introductory event that is great for the novice while featuring a course that will interest the seasoned athlete.
As the name implies, the focus is on “trying” rather than winning, on camaraderie rather than competition, on personal challenge rather than place of finish. Assemble a team of two or three people. Run, paddle, and bike your way to the finish! Or, if you feel energetic, complete all three legs of the event as a solo participant. The landscape of the park makes this a great spectator event too!
Starting in 2015 and continuing now, there are NO AGE CATEGORIES – all participants who finish will be recognized!
Running a mixture of park roads and trails around the perimeter of the lake for 5 kilometers. Paddle around temporary markers in the lake for approximately 1.75 miles. Bike on hard top and dirt roads in and around the park for 8.0 miles. All routes will remain the same as in recent years. The event includes a 5K stand-alone option. Runners will start at the same time and location as the TRYathlon participants and follow the same running course. While the event has always encouraged youth and families to participate, now even more youth categories will be offered to reward the younger competitors in the 5K Run.
