Flooding Postpones Tri-Yak-A-Thon to Oct. 20

The 6th Annual Tri-Yak-A-Thon, at Gunn Park Trails, has been postponed due to river flooding.  Organizers have tentatively rescheduled for October 20.

The Gunn Park Trails volunteers would like to invite everyone to enjoy the fall weather and join us for the 6th annual Tri-yak-a-thon.  This year’s proceeds will benefit our new bike share program. The event will take place October 20 at 10:00 AM in Gunn Park.  The Tri-yak-a-thon is a race where participants run on Gunn Park’s beautiful trails, kayak up and down the Marmaton River, and then tackle the trails again on a bike.  The goal of the event is to have fun and raise money to support the bike share program.  The trail run is approximately 4 miles, the kayak portion is 2.5 miles, and the final portion is a 7-mile mountain bike ride.  Participate as a relay team, or if you are tough enough you can do the entire race as a solo participant.  You must bring your own kayak, life jacket, helmet, and mountain bike.  Riders must wear a helmet.

Onsite registration and packet pickup will be from 8:00 to 9:45 AM at Shelter House 6.  You can register online at https://www.trireg.com/tri-yak-a-thon. The race will begin at 10:00 AM.  Whether you enter the race or just come and cheer, please join us and support our park, our trails, and our bike share program.
