The Ellington Parks & Recreation Department and a few passionate Tri-athletes will be hosting the 6th annual Ellington Triathlon at Crystal Lake. The 5th annual event held in 2013 was a huge success and we look forward to another great triathlon with added improvements. The course will consist of 1/4-mile swim in Crystal Lake, a rolling 12-mile bike course in the country and a moderately flat 3.1-mile run around the lake. This is a fairly challenging course; however, that is what makes the sport of triathlon so much fun! Again, the proceeds from the 2014 Ellington Triathlon will support local charities in Ellington.
Cost: $70.00 per participant Only 220 spots available register early!! (The cost of the race will include: snacks, beverages, race bag, t-shirt, and a water bottle.)
Volunteers are being sought to provide assistance on the day of the event. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Any local businesses looking to support the race or match a donation, please contact us at email@example.com. Thanks and we look forward to seeing you in July!
Registration will open March 1, 2014 via www.ellingtontriathlon.com; which will direct you to the Ellington Parks & Recreation Active-net registration program.

Are you nervous about swimming in the open water? Does the crowded start of a triathlon freak you out? Do you want to improve your overall swim time and endurance in triathlons? Learn the simple yet powerful body mechanics of efficient swimming with Coach Jeff Stuart.

Cross training with yoga can build strength, flexibility, and endurance. Yoga also helps athletes develop better breathing technique, improve core strength and balance.
Athletes find repetitive motion physically and mentally beneficial, but this can take a toll on muscles, joints, bones and ligaments. Some sports may strengthen one side of the body over another, eventually creating imbalances or even injury. For example, running creates strong legs but can also result in tight hips, or shin splints.
Yoga both counters imbalances and helps improve performance. We will help you strengthen and lengthen your tight and overworked muscles and expand your range of motion.

1/2 mile swim in Lake Waramaug, 10 mile bike, 3.1 mi run. A couple of hills on the bike but otherwise a flat and fast rip around Lake Waramaug. The run has hills in the first half then downhill to the finish at the winery.
Hi, if my name is familiar, it’s likely because I’ve been the director of the Pat Griskus Triathlons for the past 13years: www.PatGriskusTri.com I know it’s the natural thing for many to make the comment that I’m bringing back the old Lake Waramaug Tri, but that’s not the case. This is something that has been in the works with the Hopkins family for a number of years now. I did help start the Lake Waramaug Tri version 1.0 back in 2000. Inevitably, there will be some similarities in the race course. The current plan calls for the bike course to be roughly the same as the original. The swim will start in a different spot and part of the run will feature an excursion bringing you into the actual vineyard fields, just to get everyone in the mood for wine and to enjoy the spectacular terrain on which the winery sits. The run will be mostly road, with the short manicured cross country section around the vineyard fields being roughly ¾ of a mile, total. The finish will be at the winery itself, where we’ll be greeted with wine, artisan cheeses, fresh fruit and veggies for starters. There will be more substantial fare too, still to be determined. Post race, It’s basically going to be a little wine festival for all of us triathletes, live acoustic music is planned under the main tent, vendors with tri gear, an overall fun social scene post race is what we’re aiming for. We’ll also have some decent micro-brew beers for the non wine drinkers. We hope that you’ll join us for a morning of racing and an afternoon of fun at the Hopkins Vineyard, register today to reserve your spot! Warm Regards, Tom
