Photos: First Tri Go Far Triathlon held in West Fargo
West Fargo held the first Tri Go Far Triathlon on Saturday, June 23, starting at the Hulbert Aquatic Center for the swimming portion before going to the 11-mile bike course and the five-kilometer running course circling the aquatic center and West Fargo neighborhoods.
The stretch 50-meter pool, which was used for the 2016 U.S. Olympic Trials, has 10 50-meter lanes that are seven feet wide which were used by multiple people per lane for the 500-meter swim. Then the transition area was just outside the south exit in the parking lot where competitors put on their biking shoes and helmet to go on a 5.5 mile bike course for two loops. Back at the Aquatic Center was another transition for the 3.1 mile run through a residential area before finishing on the running track on the south side of the Aquatic Center.
