Broome County Sets-up For Triathlon

BINGHAMTON, NY – Broome County Executive Jason Garnar and Broome County Parks and Rec Director Matt Gawors promoted the Broome County Parks Triathlon today at Dorchester Park.

The 12th annual Triathlon is scheduled for Saturday morning, June 24th beginning at 9 A.M. It will feature swimming, biking and running. Registration for the event is closed however members of the public are encouraged to come witness over 160 people participate.

“Over half of the participants are from outside Broome County,” said Garnar. “This is an excellent opportunity to promote our parks in a fun and healthy way.”
