Bike, Swim, Run to Wellness with 1st Annual Indoor "Try"-athlon

Jan. 25, 2017

Webster Wellness 1st Annual Indoor "Try"-athlon
The first annual "Try-athlon" is April 17-23.

Webster Wellness has organized its first annual "Try-athlon" to be held April 17-23 in the University Pool and Fitness Center for new and veteran triathlon participants.

Part of its spring “wellness challenge” event, this is for anyone in the Webster University community interested in competing, a challenge or just for seeking new ways to move more and gain new heights.

To help prepare and engage in this event, workshops will be available for participants who want support for any of the three events (swim, bike, run). Workshop participants will get tricks and tips for training, outside resources and on-going help from our champion advisors Ryan Elliot, Myrna Homm and Julie “JP” Palmer.


Just Try: All are Welcome

  • We want you to emphasize TRYING (all experience levels welcomed)
  • We want to make it possible for you to achieve your personal wellness goals
  • It doesn’t matter if you run the entire 2 miles or walk the entire race, but it does matter that you at least “TRY

If you don’t want to participate alone or just simply want to make it more fun: join a team (teams can be assigned, as well).
