Tri For Evan Marathon
The Tri For Evan Marathon is back up and running and Color Right Now is running along with you as a key supplier of racing bibs, banners, signs, flags, tear drop flags, course markers & backdrops for Calgary marathons as well as marathons all over Alberta.
Evan is a 17 year old boy who suffered a severe brain injury 11 years ago as a result of mitochondrial disease rendering him a non-verbal spastic quadriplegic. Evan struggles every day to cope with chronic pain, low energy levels, and overall quality of life. Evan knows better than anyone how thankful we should be for our health and is inspired to see others, especially kids, being active, having fun and making the most of everyday life.
Evan is our inspiration for this family oriented event that includes a safe, fun non-competitive race for kids as well as a sprint triathlon or duathlon (individual and team). Truly something for the whole family.
The triathlon consists of a 650m swim, 22km cycle and 5km run. The duathlon consists of a 2.5km run, 22km cycle and 5km run. Either can be done as an individual or in teams of two or three. Once everybody has completed the triathlon/duathlon, we’ll have a fun, non-competitive race for the kids. The kids race is meant to be fun and we’re keeping the distances short so they’re appropriate for the under 7 crowd (but all ages are welcome). The swim will be approximately 50m and will be close to the shore line. Kids are more than welcome to wear life jackets. The cycle will be an out and back on the pathway only and will be about 1.5 km and the run will be from transition to the finish line for about 350m.
Entry fees include a t-shirt, finishers medal, post race BBQ and beer!
