Young athletes get a chance to run, bike, swim and shine

NORTH LIBERTY– To have nearly 100 athletes participate in a local triathlon event is successful by any measure; to note that all of them are between the ages and 6 and 14 is more remarkable.
North Liberty’s second annual Just Tri Youth Triathlon was held Sunday, Aug. 4, with three separate age brackets in varied biking, swimming and running distances.
Even co-director Katie Gerot– also the aquatics supervisor for the North Liberty Recreation Department– said 98 kids signed up for this year’s event.
“It was nice to have such great support from the community,” said Gerot.
