 The inaugural Aspen indoor Tri60, affectionately known from here out as the Turkey Triathlon, was a smashing success.

The sold-out event was a great start to the Thanksgiving holiday.  With Turkey Trots throughout the valley, the indoor triathlon provided Aspenites with a unique way to burn those Thanksgiving calories.  

The 10-minute swim, 30-minute indoor cycle and 20-minute treadmill run allow participants to give the sport of triathlon a go, in an unintimidating, supportive environment.

Of the 20 triathletes, almost half were first-timers or beginners with an ironman thrown into the mix as well.  The support from friends and family was a wonderful addition and added a great vibe to the event.

All of the triathletes went home with a goodie bag, t-shirt, goggles, swim cap and of course the coveted finishers medal!

A special thank you to the volunteers who gave up their Thanksgiving morning to help.  We could not have done it without you.

Next year’s Turkey Triathlon might be the perfect time to give triathlon a go – gobble, gobble!! Check out our pictures, here.
