Strassburg Sock Keuka Lake Triathlon
The Arts Center of Yates County is once again working with Score This as the local partner for this year’s Strassburg Sock Keuka Lake Triathlon. The multifaceted race will be held on Sunday, June 11th from 7:00AM to 12:00 noon, starting on the Keuka College campus. The annual event attracts 500-800 athletes competing in either a medium length triathlon (1.5k swim, 40k bike, 10k run), a short (.75k swim, 22k bike, 5k run), a medium or short “Aquabike” (swim and bike) or a Duathlon (bike and run). There’s even a short kids triathlon for kids of all ages.
A festive and colorful affair, the Keuka Triathlon relies on volunteers to help keep athletes on course and cheer them on. The Arts Center receives a donation for every triathlon volunteer. Volunteers help register athletes, help with body marking, man intersections to flag turns in the course, run boats (or jet skis) to guard swimmers and hand out water at the finish line. Volunteers typically serve for three to four hours on Sunday morning.
Anyone interested in volunteering for this year’s triathlon should contact the Arts Center at 315-536-8226 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
