Hot Springs youth triathlon program gets price cut

— There’s a price cut on the way for participants in the Old Town Hot Springs youth triathlon program.

The triathlon training program, coached by Joy Rasmussen, starts this week and will now cost $100 per child. The program will include twice-weekly training sessions in the mornings through summer.

It’s for athletes between the ages of 8 and 16.

“It’s really about fun and fitness, not competitive nature,” Rasmussen said. “They can have any kind of bike. It doesn’t have to be a fancy road bike. We just want to open it up so more kids can participate.”

Schlichtman quick in Boulder

Mike Schlichtman qualified for the Ironman 70.3 World Championships, set for Quebec, Canada, in November, thanks to his showing in last weekend’s Boulder Ironman 70.3 event.

Schlichtman completed the course in 4 hours, 55 minutes and 42 seconds, placing eighth in his age group of 112 racers, and 158th overall, out of 925 men’s finishers.
