Florida Pool and Student Recreation & Fitness Center
Try-A-Tri is a new event presented by UF RecSports on Saturday, July 26, 2014. The event will be held at Student Recreation & Fitness Center and also Florida Pool. This is a great event for people with any level of fitness experience—novice to advanced. Oh, and the event is free and includes a t-shirt!
This event is designed as a first year experience for any UF student—undergraduate or graduate. To be eligible, you should be a UF student with fewer than 30 hours earned at UF. Transfer credits do not count. This event will fill up fast as there are limited spots, and registration opens on Monday, June 30 at 9 a.m. through RSConnect, here.
Triathletes typically face ultimate challenges and harsh outdoor elements including ocean currents, wet clothes, winds and rain, extreme temperatures, etc. The RecSports Try-A-Tri, however, is held indoors and each leg gives you 20 minutes to be your best. You can compete against yourself, or against others in the event. At the end of the day, we want to challenge you with an event that is fun and rewarding, and introduce you to the RecSports facilities and also our community of support.
There will be 20 minutes spent in each leg, and the challengers attempt to cover the most distance in each—an indoor run on a treadmill, an indoor cycle and a shallow-water swim or pool jog in Florida Pool. Pick your pace and keep moving! Try to push yourself to achieve your greatest distance in 20 minutes.
