We all know the importance of exercise in a healthy lifestyle, including aerobic exercises like running, swimming, or biking, and most of us have figured out how helpful it is to train for a specific goal such as completing a race. So how about combining all three of those events into one competition for the ultimate test of your conditioning? Set-Up, Inc. organizes 13 triathlons and duathlons across Virginia each year, including the annual Smith Mountain Lake Triathlon which was held earlier this spring. But don’t worry, you haven’t missed your chance to register for a local triathlon this year. The Big Lick Triathlon, held at Smith Mountain Lake State Park, is set for Saturday, September 23rd. Information on the race can be found here. The three events include a 1500 meter swim, a 40K bike, and a 10K run – certainly a challenge for even the most fit among us! If you have a few interested friends, the Big Lick race allows team entries in addition to solo categories. So lace up those shoes or grab your bike helmet and start training!
