According to Green, the VADC applied for and received a $5,835 grant from the Montana Office of Tourism & Business Development to help fund and promote this new event. 

The “Triple P” event includes kayaking (1.5 miles), biking (12 miles), and running (3 miles) legs.

Organizers are planning an evening kick-off and race packet pick-up with bike and kayak gear check on Friday evening, June 12. The triathlon will start at 6 a.m. (late registration) and conclude at 2 p.m. Saturday, June 13. 

A fundraising barbecue lunch sponsored by a local school organization will be available on Saturday for spectators and participants.

“The purpose of this event is to attract outdoor loving tourists to our versatile and scenic recreational area,” explained Green. 

The VADC is planning for 100-150 competitors and their families. Organizers expect 30 to 50 percent non-resident attendance from Alberta, Idaho, Washington and Wyoming said Green.
