2017 Jim Brinkerhoff Varsity Triathlon will be held on

Friday & Saturday, April 14-15, 2017, in Pima, AZ.
 

Registration is coming soon!

The Jim Brinkerhoff Coronado District Triathlon is the largest Varsity Scout event in the nation! With over 1,500 participants and the capacity for 2000, this 75-yard swim, 6-mile bike, and 1.6-mile run is a seamless activity with high-tech timing chips.  Young people as well as adults are destined to have a great time!

This two-day event features a dance on Friday Night. Campsite is available for those wishing to camp overnight. The following morning the race begins at 7 AM, and because of the high-tech timing chips, everyone will be finished before 11 AM!!! This is a fantastic way for Varsity Scouts to earn their triathlon pins (which will be available for purchase), scouts to earn other requirements, or just a fun activity for ANYONE!

Please reserve and share this date with any young men or young women’s groups that may have an interest in this exciting and fun activity. Scouts and non-scouts, men and women, old and young--ALL ARE WELCOME!!
