9th Annual GSA Triathlon

On Saturday July 10th at 8:oo am the Graduate Student Association of Fermilab will be putting on the 9th Fermilab Triathlon! This is a FREE race for all those who hold a Fermilab ID badge and from stories told in the past sounds like it is a real good time. Individuals or teams can compete (having on team member doing one task and then another completing the next) and many stories of the fun to be had has been conveyed to me by the CDF elders over my time with the experiment.

This will be my first time competing in this event and I am very excited. I am a terrible swimmer, but the first portion of the race happens in the Village’s pool with a life guard and other competitors around, so I figure I’ll be able to flop my way through it.

The events are structured as such:

  • 800m Swim in the FNAL pool.
  • 20km Bike on an out and back loop on FNAL roads (see below for race route).
  • 5km Run on a great loop course consisting of both paved roads and prairie paths (see below for race route).

I would like to encourage anyone who is from the physics community that may have participated in past years to share their stories in the comments.

This promises to be a beautiful race and a lot of fun…if I end up finishing without killing over expect posts with results from the race to follow!
