NorthPointe hosted the 9th Annual Prairie Triathlon and Fit N Fun Fair on Saturday, June 10th. Over 70 triathlon participants came out to swim 350 yds., bike 17 miles through Winnebago and Boone counties and run 3.2 miles on the beautiful NorthPointe Trails. Overall winners were Patrick McIntyre with a time of 1:11:45.5 for the men and Tara Sheetz with a time of 1:18:35.8 for the ladies. The triathlon drew both veterans and new participants. We would like to thank Tri-3 Sports Timing for timing the event and Brooklyn Deli of Roscoe for the post race refreshments. The Fit N Fun Fair attracted kids of all ages for a fun morning. Visitors were able to get their face painted, run through inflatable obstacles, climb the 3 story rock wall, visit with the Harlem Roscoe Fire Department and say hello to the Winnebago K-9 group. They were also able to learn about sports drink nutrition, visit with RAMP and Circle of Change Vets Dog Program. A bit hit was a visit from Marshmellow, a white pelican, from Hoo Haven. The success of this event is hugely based on the volunteers that worked on all aspects of the event. Thank you Volunteers!!!!! We hope to see everyone next year for our 10th Annual Triathlon at NorthPointe.
