On August 20, 2016, Day Kimball Healthcare hosts the 7th Annual DKH Give it a TRI! Local athletes are invited to train for and take part in a half-mile swim, 12 mile bike ride and 3.1 mile run to support their own health and fitness while serving as an example to promote health and fitness in our community.

Open to anyone age 13 and older. Participants can compete individual or form a relay team of 2 or 3 people - family teams are welcome and encouraged! The event will sell out at 300 participants so registering early is recommended. The FIRM will be managing timing and logistics for the race.

Cost  
$70 for individual participants, $80 for relay teams
Plus $12 per person one-day insurance fee
$10 late fee for race day registration

You can also collect pledges from family and friends to increase the fundraising impact of your participation. Just print our Give it a Tri Pledge Form.

Proceeds to benefit ongoing and future health and wellness education for communities across Northeast Connecticut. 

All About the Tri

Important Parking Information:

  • Parking is available along Moosup Pond Road from Squaw Rock Road with signs posted.
  • There is a smaller parking area on the Salmen Drive side of the pond, signs will be posted and volunteers will be directing cars.
  • The transition area and race packet pick-up opens at 6:15 AM, arriving early is recommended to avoid last minute rushing.

Tips to Remember when Registering:

  • When registering two person relay teams be sure to enter one of the racer's information twice. In the USAT # field, enter "same as racer 1 or 2" so that race directors have a clear indication of which racer is participating in each event.
  • Each cyclist is required to wear a helmet.
  • You must be 13 years or older to register.
