(Apple Valley)– More than 400 athletes and hundreds more spectators are expected to converge on Apple Valley September 28 for the fourth annual Reverse Triathlon.

The event will start with a 5K run, transition into a 12-mile bicycle ride and finish with a 150-yard swim.  Children can participate in a shortened version with a three-quarter mile run, one-mile bicycle ride and 50-yard swim.

To ensure everyone’s safety, the following streets will be closed between 6:30 and 10:15 a.m.:

  • Dale Evans Parkway from Civic Center Park to Waalew
  • Dale Evans Parkway/Bell Mountain Road from Waalew to Corwin
  • Waalew from Corwin to Comanche

Access to Highway 18 will still be accessible through either Rancherias or Corwin to the west and Navajo or Flathead to the east. Citizens on Patrol volunteers will help residents that live within the closure areas navigate safely to one of the detour points.

All adult athletes will receive a T-shirt and medal for finishing. For more information or to register for the event contact Joseph Ramos at (760) 240-7000 x7890 or visit www.hdevents.org.
