The Albany Community Triathlon is going virtual for 2020 to adapt to the coronavirus pandemic. In addition to fundraising for a worthy cause, the goal is to encourage you to stay fit and healthy, while allowing you the flexibility to decide what three activities to include in your own individual, self-monitored triathlon. You are free to improvise around the typical swim-bike-run triathlon format with other activities of your own choosing that might be more accessible given the widespread facility closures due to the pandemic and poor outdoor air quality due to the West Coast wildfires.
Pick any set of activities in any location -- indoor or outdoor, road or trail, ocean or tub -- that provide the right amount of physical challenge given your current fitness level, and follow all health department protocols (maintain social distance, wear a mask when near others, wash hands). Here are some ideas for alternative activities besides swim, bike, run:
Keep track of the three activities you perform for your pandemic triathlon effort, noting the time, distance, number of reps (as relevant for your chosen activities). You can do the activities back-to-back as in a triathlon, or on separate days if you want. The total cumulative amount of time must be at least 20 minutes. Digital trackers such as Strava or Map My Run are useful tools, if you have access to them. This event has no age restrictions, and there will be no team entries. Parents or guardians are responsible for registering and recording results for their kids. Registrants will receive instructions on how to submit their self-recorded results
All proceeds benefit the Albany Athletic Boosters, a 501(c)(3) organization supporting public school sports programs in Albany CA. Participants will not only receive the many health benefits of physical exercise, but also a special, limited edition pair of Albany Pandemic Triathlon socks! 🧦 Prizes will also be awarded for a variety of yet-to-be-determined categories.
Pandemics and wildfires may slow us down, but with some creativity, we can find a way to keep going. We hope for better conditions next year so we can return to our traditional physical event and see everyone’s smiling faces as we circle around Albany's Memorial Park.😀
