The Jefferson park and recreation department is making it a bit easier to be a triathlete with a new program, a “Lazy Man Triathlon.”
The program begins Nov. 11 and ends Dec. 20. The challenge is to compile 26.2 miles of running or walking, 112 miles of stationary cycling, and either 10,560 feet of rope pull or 50,000 meters rowing on a rowing machine.
The running/walking portion can be done on a treadmill, cross-trainer, or the walking track at the Greene County Community Center. Walking credit will be given for Zumba®, Extreme Fit and interval step classes. Participants can also use the elipticals, step mill or X-Rider.
Mileage can be logged outside as well.
The program is open to all members of the Greene County Community Center. There is a $20 fee to participate, and all who complete the triathlon will received a T-shirt.
JPRD will kick off the girls basketball season with Meet the Rams Thursday’s, Nov. 14, from 6 to 7 pm at the community center. The Rams girls team will organize games and activities to help promote the game as well as provide leadership for boys and girls in the community.
Activities will be geared toward youngsters in grades K-8, but all members of the community are welcome.
Participants are welcome to bring a white T-shirt for players to autograph.
There is no charge.
