Are you someone who is new to the sport and needs a nice event to get you comfy, Dana (your web mistress) hosts an event in October for beginner at Finley Aquatic Center.
The event is on Sunday, October 18th at 9am and is a 400m pool swim (all to ourselves), 9 mile bike ride on the Creek Trail and a 3.1 mile run on the trail. The cost of entry is $15 and if you would like a t-shirt, there is a $20 cost. Again, this event can be low-key, entry level to intermediate (I need to practice transitions event). Its up to you, but it local and the cost is just right.

Have a great day and if you are free to volunteer, let me know. I need about 2 course marshals.
