The TRY-Athlon is a team-building fundraiser that brings faculty and staff together to compete for the title of TRY-Athlon Single Event (Swim, Walk or Run) Champion or TRY-Athalon Power Team Champion (team with participants in all 3 events). While there is a competition portion of the event, the main focus on the event is getting people moving and building Healthy Minds, Healthy Bodies and Healthy Teams.
Each event team will be represented by 1 Captain plus 5 additional teammates for an event: Swim, Walk or Run. The Captain can make a "Power" Team for all 3 events with a Captain plus 17 teammates. This event is open to Faculty, Staff, Retirees, Spouses/Partners, GTAs/GRAs of Oregon State University. The cost for the event is $5 per person per event. A person could participate in the pool for the swim plus on the field for one event, walk or run.
The event will be Friday, June 8th, 2018. The swim portion of the event will take place at the Langton Pool and the walk/run portion will take place on Student Legacy Park (across from Dixon Recreation Center). The event itself will be a 20-minute relay. The team with the most combined laps for each event wins the activity category. Power Teams will compete against other Power Teams. All participants will also have the opportunity to win raffle prizes from our sponsors.
