Triathlon One O One series to come to Lake County on June 10

LAKE COUNTY – A new international triathlon series, Triathlon One O One, is set to launch in 2007 in North America, visiting four destinations, including Lakeport in Lake County on June 10.

A town hall meeting will be presented at 6 p.m. March 7 in the Lake County Board of Supervisors Chambers at the Lake County Courthouse, 255 N. Forbes St., Lakeport.

Representatives from local community-based organizations are encouraged to attend to find out about volunteer opportunities and the potential for fundraising associated with this event. Members of the public are welcome to attend.

Triathlon One O One offers a new distance in triathlon racing by featuring a 1.86 mile (3 km) swim, followed by an 80.6 mile (130 km) bike, and then an 18.6 mile (30 km) run – a total distance of 101.06 miles.

The series stops include Florida in May, California in June, Nova Scotia in September, culminating in Texas in November with the Triathlon One O One World Championship.

According to event organizers, the series may expand to a total of 20 events worldwide in 2008.

Each Triathlon One O One event features a $50,000 USD prize purse and is limited to the first 1,500 age group participants.

The Championship event will offer a $150,000 professional prize purse with a field limited to 2,000 participants from North America and abroad.

The Triathlon One O One Clear Lake event will be held Sunday, June 10, and participants are expected to begin to arrive in the middle of the week prior to the race.
