Mineral Point is the proud host to a youth triathlon, now in its second year. This year’s triathlon will take place August 17, 2013 and is once again sponsored by the School District’s Wellness Committee.
The courses are tailored for children in three different age groups — 4-6, 7-9- and 10-12. Here’s a link to the three courses.

Once again, the event is chaired by Julie Oberhauser, an experienced triathalete who believes that “triathlons not only promote fitness but improve a child’s self-confidence as they cross the finish line.”
To receive a cool commemorative T-shirts, you need to sign up by Saturday August 3rd. Participants are welcome to sign up after that – and even on the day of the race. Of course, you don’t have to be a Pointer to compete. All children ages 4-12 are welcome to take part.
