Mark your calendars for the 14th Annual Emily Schindler Memorial Scholarship Triathlon on Saturday, April 18th, 2020.
Never done a triathlon before? The “sprint” length distances are perfect for first time triathletes. Each course takes place at the Severna Park Community Center pool and the B&A Trail. The triathlon can be completed individually or by teams of 2 or 3 people.
Sprint Triathlon: 800 yard Swim, 9 mile Bike, 3 mile Run
Flamingo Feat:1,600 yard Swim, 18 mile Bile, 6 mile Run
The recreational triathlon was established to benefit the Emily Schindler Memorial Scholarship which awards several college bound swimmers scholarships each year. To date, nearly $49,000 has been awarded to 80 swimmers. Emily began swimming competitively when she was 9 years old yet, she placed her friendships first and focused on having a “best time” rather than getting a “best time”. Her spirit prevails at the triathlon each year as many friends and neighbors come together to honor her memory and for many participate in their first triathlon and have their best time!
