The 10th Annual CONTACT Cape-Atlantic Triathlon/Duathlon will be held from Jan. 18 to Feb. 15.
Participants will swim, bike, and run a long-distance triathlon over the course of a month. The triathlon includes a 2.4 mile swim, an 112 mile bike ride, and a 26 mile run. Those who sign up for the duathlon can opt to complete any two of the three triathlon events. Other forms of exercise can contribute to total mileage. A spin class will serve as a portion of the bike and walking can contribute to the total run.
Participants will receive a calendar for logging miles at registration. They will also receive a tee shirt and the chance to win a FitBit activity tracker. The first place triathlon finisher will receive a one month membership to the Ocean City Aquatic and Fitness Center.
