Tumbleweed Triathlon Benefits Permian Basin Healthcare Provider
Back for his 21st year, the Tumbleweed Triathlon — benefiting the Medical Center Health Foundation — will be held Sunday at the University of Texas Permian Basin Pool, 4901 E. University Blvd. The whistle sounds at 7.30am and all competitors must report to the briefing 30 minutes before.
An event sanctioned by the American Triathlon, participants will participate in a three-part race, consisting of a 20 km flat bike on wide-shouldered roads, an out-and-back race on the UTPB campus and a 400 swim meters in a 50- meter swimming pool. Chip timing – when a runner wears an electronic device registered with their race number that alerts strategically placed chip readers once the runner has passed them – will be used.
