A large contingent of local athletes took part in the Battle at Midway triathlon last Saturday ahead of the Aug. 21 TriUtah Jordanelle Triathlon.
A full triathlon course took competitors through a 1,500-meter swim, 22-mile bike ride and 6.2-mile run, while a "lite" triathlon involved 700 meters swimming, 22 miles on the bike and 3.2 miles running. The event also featured a 10K trail run and 5K fun run/walk later on Saturday night at Deer Creek Reservoir.
