The Coeur d’Alene Triathlon, set for August 9, 2008 at 7:00 a.m. in Coeur d’Alene City Park is celebrating its 25th anniversary. This year also marks the first time that the race is USAT (USA-Triathlon) sanctioned.
“This is a big step not only for the triathlon and the athletes, but for the city of Coeur d’Alene,” said race director Mac Cavaser. “The USAT sanction not only improves insurance and liability issues, but allows participants to earn points towards becoming professional tri-athletes.”
The 1500-participant limit is filling up quickly and Cavaser reminds athletes to register soon. Registration is available online at www.cdatriathlon.com
