 Those interested in participating in the 2019 Rogue River Triathlon are invited to training sessions on July 13, 20 and 27 at the Agness RV Park entrance.   

The Rogue River Triathlon “Triathletes Training Together from Bridge to Bridge” event is set for Saturday, Aug. 3.

At the training event, BJ Reed, who has competed in 10 triathlons and taken first place in her division in the 2015 Lavaman Waikoloa Triathlon in Hawaii, will join co-organizer Claudia Gentry-Crook in providing tips about training and race-day prep.

They will join participants for a trial run of the entire course.  

The first Saturday session will focus on biking and running. You’ll want to bring a life jacket and river shoes for the next two sessions
