SHOREWOOD HILLS (WKOW) – Despite the heat, dozens of people got out early this morning to participate in the Shorewood Hills "Try-It" Triathlon.
The adults started the race with a 250-meter swim, followed by a 5-mile bike ride and a three-mile run. The kids course was much shorter, but still challenging for participants.
"There's a lot of tough competition, but go hard and see what happens," said Triathlon youth participant Max Cardwell.
"It's a nice thing to do on the 4th of July, just to start off the day with a little exercise," said event organizer Karen Knetter.
The athletes didn't have to pay an entry fee, but any donations went towards the Shorewood Hills Parent Teacher Organization. This was the fourth year of the triathlon.
