On April 27, Pacific Union College will present the Napa
Valley Off-Road Triathlon, an event that will benefit the non-profit
organization Clinica Verde. Clinica Verde promotes sustainable health care for
the underserved populations of rural Nicaragua.
The Triathlon features events for all ages, including a
kid’s triathlon, a 5k run/walk, triathlon relay, beginner triathlon, and the
individual triathlon. Uniquely, the triathlon includes a mountain bike course
instead of a road bike course, much like the popular Xterra series of races.
Pre-registration for the race closes on Friday, April 26,
and the race-day registration opens at 5:30 AM. The triathlon, relays, and 5k
run/walk will begin at 8 AM with the kid’s triathlon beginning at 10 AM.
All participants will receive official finish times,
finisher medals, and race t-shirts. Three-deep medals will also be given in age
Sponsored by St. Helena Hospital Napa Valley and local
businesses including the Calistoga Bike Shop, Sportago, and the Napa Running
Company, the race is directed by Fabio Maia, PUC’s service and missions
