The first meeting of a group that’s trying to set up a triathlon in the local area is set for today. Organizers say that they plan to hold the triathlon on August 26th of next year, hosted by the Southwest Washington YMCA. The event will include a 500-yard swim, a 12-mile bike ride and a 5K run. Today’s initial meeting is set to run from noon to 1:30 pm at the St. John Medical Center Women’s Pavilion, located at 17th and Delaware in Longview. Cowlitz on the Move is also involved in the organizational effort for this event. If you’d like to know more, contact Wellness Service Specialist John Schapman at 414-7372.
