“PACT ANNOUNCES SECOND ANNUAL TRIATHLON”
St. Augustine, FL - PACT Prevention Coalition of St. John’s County is pleased to announce the second annual St. Augustine Ultimate Summer Triathlon, which will be held on Sunday, August 17th at beautiful Vilano Beach at 7:30 a.m. This sprint Triathlon is coordinated by DRC Sports. Participants can sign up
for an individual, team or relay event at www.drcsports.com. The event features a ¼ mile ocean swim, an 11 mile bike ride, and a 3 mile run, capturing one of the best views in town, across the Usina bridge and back.
“We expect this year’s event to attract additional Triathlon enthusiasts”, stated Lynnette Horwath, PACT Prevention Coalition Manager. “Last year our 228 participants came from as far away as Tacoma, Washington and Crystal Lake, Illinois.”
An additional fund-raising component will be a carb loading dinner at Amici’s Italian Restaurant, 6 pm – 8 pm on August 16th. The all-you-can-eat pasta and salad buffet costs $25 per person and advanced tickets are required. A small silent auction, featuring mainly sports’ accessories, will add to the evening’s fun. The dinner is open to the public and will also feature 3 mini-presentations from local and regional fitness experts.
The Triathlon is PACT’s main annual fund-raising event. PACT Prevention of St. Johns County seeks to keep our local youth alcohol and drug free.
