Simmons Center hosts Give it a Tri Triathlon

DUNCAN — Runners, swimmers and bikers from more than 20 cities and three states arrived at the Simmons Center ready to compete bright and early Sunday morning, as the center hosted its sixth annual Indoor Spirit Triathlon.

From 6 a.m.-12:30 p.m., 72 people with ages ranging from nine to 70 dove into the event in the Simmons pool, put the pedal to the metal on the center’s stationary bikes, then dug deep with a final run around the track.

“The event has definitely grown since the first year,” foundation director Cyndi Crook said. “Just a few years ago, it was only running from 6 a.m.- 10:30 a.m.”

All entry fees for the triathlon were used to raise money for the Duncan Regional Hospital Health Foundation.

Taking home first place in the overall adult male triathlon was Talbot Cox of Oklahoma City with a time of 46:02. Anna Fisher, hailing all the way from Anchorage, Alaska, earned first in the overall adult female triathlon with a time of 50:44.

Cyril’s Coleman Edmonson won the 12-14 male age group, finishing in 26:01. Deryn Hobbs of Ardmore took first in the 12-14 female age group by completing the triathlon in 31:55.

The age 9-11 male triathlon was won by Tulsa’s Truitt Durham with a time of 16:25, while Anardark’s Rylea Bennett won the age 9-11 female category with a time of 17:03.

Adults swam 300 meters, biked for eight miles and ran three miles. The 12-14 age group faced a 200 meter swim, four mile bike ride and a one mile run. Youths between ages nine and 11 swam 100 meters, biked for 2 miles and ran half a mile.

The event was the triathlon’s second year including youth events, something Crook said is part of the event continuing to grow.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
