Wellness Committee Hosts Triathlon Challenge

Released by Panhandle State Campus Communications on 04/18/2017

Goodwell, Okla. — Oklahoma Panhandle State University students, faculty, and staff joined with members of the community in participating in the 2017 Lazyman Triathlon hosted by the Panhandle State Wellness Committee, Noble Center, and Aggie Intramurals. The challenge consisted of a 2.4-mile swim or 1200 meters on the rowing machine, a 112-mile bike ride, and a 26.2-mile run/walk completed over six weeks.

Student Emily Goeken said, “Doing the triathlon was a fun experience and I’m glad I decided to go for it and finish it! I believe it was a great event for Panhandle State to host and get not only students, but faculty, staff, and community members moving as well!”

The challenge was open to all fitness levels and the three events could be completed in any order at any pace. Each participant logged their mileage at the Noble Center. There were 62 participants in the challenge and 20 completed it.

Noble Center Director Amber Fesmire commented on the event, “I would like to let everyone know that we will be hosting similar challenges throughout the year and hope to make the triathlon an annual event. Also, I would like to give special recognition to our fastest finisher, Ian Lin, and to our youngest participants, Amalia Wilkins age 12 and Hercules Lin age 13.
