The 2nd Annual Tri-a-little-thon, will be held September 21, 2019 and is the race with no excuses.
Hosted by the Forever Parks Foundation of Pearland and Parks & Recreation, the event is held at the Delores Fenwick Nature Center at 5750 Magnolia Parkway..
Teams of two are required, ages 14+. Crazy team names are optional. The teams compete in three obstacles in order to be crowned Tri-a-little-thon Champions.
There is also a VIP category for those who want to participate without competing. All ‘participants’ receive a t-shirt and customized mug.
Obstacles will include a floating mug club, a friendly tandem bike ride and the upright caterpillar crawl.
The mug club has competitors fill a mug in water gun style, the tandem event has the two team members riding a bicycle together and the crawl involves a leisurely plank walk for more team bonding.
Cost of competing is $60 per team or $30 per person. VIP tickets are $60.
Music and food trucks will be at the event. Adult beverages will be served to legal participants. Bakfish Brewing Co, of Pearland will provide drink tickets again this year.
