Central Catholic Biathlon
The Central Catholic Biathlon is about 8 weeks away: plenty of time to practice getting the erg splits down and to break in a new pair of running shoes! Event date is December 9th; registration deadline is December 2nd.
Men compete with the High School Varsity Boys in a 10,000 meter erg & 6 mile run.
Women compete with the High School Varsity Girls in a 7,500 meter erg & 6 mile run.
The erging takes place at the Lambert Boathouse on Washington's Landing; the run is from the boathouse down to PNC Park and back. For more on the biathlon this year, see http://www.threeriversrowing.org/r-CentralBiathlon.html.
