The TriSumter Triathlon begins tomorrow morning, October 19, 2013, at 8:30 a.m. at the City of Sumter Aquatics Center. If you’ve kept meaning to, but haven’t gotten around to registering for this USAT-sanctioned event, now in its third successful year, there is still time—but only just. Online registration is complete, but you can still reserve your slot.
If you would like to pay the registration fee by Visa or MasterCard (credit or debit), please call the Palmetto Tennis Center at (803) 774-3969, or stop by in person at 440/450 Theatre Drive in Sumter. To pay in cash, visit the City of Sumter Aquatics Center at 1115 South Lafayette Drive (please call 774-3998 for more info, but remember that you cannot register by telephone at this location). You can also keep up with any last-minute developments on the event’s Facebook page.
Over the last couple of years, the TriSumter Triathlon has already become one of the area’s “can’t miss” events, attracting hundreds of participants from all over South Carolina and nearby states. This exciting competition is presented by Anytime Fitness, with additional sponsorship from Tuomey Healthcare System, the US Air Force, Elmore-Cannon-Stephens Funeral Home, Colonial Family Practice, and the City of Sumter.
If you can’t swim, don’t run, have no bicycle, or just don’t like to perspire—whatever the reason may be—you can still come out and cheer our athletes to the finish line. And who knows—you may get inspired for the 2014 race!
