Pittsburg Parks and Recreation is hosting a team triathlon today at Lincoln Park.

The “Get Fit TRYathlon” brought out competitors from all around the area.

36 participants each swim 100 yards, bike four miles, and run one mile.

Each team consists of two men and two women.

Today’s event will raise money for the Boys and Girls Club.

Organizers say it’s all about being active.

“The thinking behind get fit,” says race director Joanna Rhodes, “is just getting up and trying. Even walking is good.”

Following the team relay, kids participated in a youth triathlon.

Organizers hope to raise around $8,000 with today’s competition.
