Homer Mariner Triathlon Saturday

The Homer Mariner Triathlon is scheduled for Saturday, with the swimming leg of the competition at the Kate Kuhns Aquatic Center at Homer High School. The pool will open at 6 a.m., a race meeting is scheduled for 7:15 a.m. and the race starts at 8 a.m.

Following the 1,000-yard swim, competitors will have a 15-mile bicycle ride from the pool up East Hill to Skyline Drive, down West Hill and out to the fishing hole on the Homer Spit. The final leg, a 5-mile run, will take competitors from the spit back to the Homer High School parking lot.

The race is open to competitors of all ages, but is an ironman-only competition, meaning each competitor must complete all three legs — no team entries. The entry fee is $35. Entry forms are available at the Homer pool. To register or for more information, contact Mary Lou Kelsey by e-mail at or by phone at (907) 299-1985.
