EL CENTRO – The Law Enforcement Torch Run sponsored the First Annual Turkey Duathlon Saturday, November 24, at Imperial Valley College.
Mild, sunny weather greeted the contestants at the 7:30 a.m. start.
Contestants ranged from beginners to pro triathletes. The duathlon consisted of a 1 mile run, a 12 mile bike ride, and a 3 mile run. Some chose to do all events by themselves while others formed teams.
While the event seemed to go smoothly, the organizers said that they have some changes in mind to make it better for next year.
Lunch was served following the race.
The event benefits Imperia Valley Special Olympics.
