The Essex Youth Clinic, 7-20-13, and Youth Triathlon, 8-3-13, are just around the corner. If you would please post this announcement to your view of Cape Ann / Gloucester / Essex, the Board of Health would be much appreciate it. Might your girls compete?
Clerk, Essex BOH
The Essex Board of Health is holding the fifth annual Essex Youth Triathlon on Saturday, August 3, at Centennial Grove / Chebacco Lake in Essex for youth of all abilities ages 5 through 15. This is a USAT sanctioned event.
The BOH will also hold a free Essex Youth Triathlon clinic (USAT membership is required) on Saturday, July 20th starting at 9 a.m. for those registered for the triathlon & those considering registration. This clinic will review set up, transition, race courses, bike safety, and other valuable race info. The clinic is expected to run until approximately noon. Phone (978 768-7614) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let us know planned attendance. Please be sure the child wears a bathing suit & brings their bike, helmet, sneakers and towel.
A BOH goal is to keep this race affordable, so that all who want can participate. Entry fees are $25 per entrant, with a family cap of $50. Because this is a USAT sanctioned event, all participants must be USAT members. The Deadline for registration is noon, July 31 or when capacity is reached. A $12 late fee will be charged for registrations received after July 21.
Additional information and printable registration forms are available on the Town of Essex website, http://www.essexma.org, or by calling the Essex Board of Health at 978 768-7614. Online registration is available at http://www.active.com.  For USAT membership, please go to http://www.usatriathlon.org
Because our goal is to keep the Essex Youth Triathlon safe, affordable & enjoyable for all, the BOH depends exclusively on donations and registration fees to make this a success. The Board continues to need & welcome donations of funding, goods (raffle prizes, food & drink, etc), talent (entertainment, photography, etc.), and (maybe most importantly) volunteers to help & oversee the racers. If you, or anyone you know of, can help in any way please contact the Essex Board of Health. The BOH, race participants and their families thank you.
