LISTEN: Batesville Parks and Rec reps talk new long-distance triathlon challenge; registration ends Oct. 30

A new four-week triathlon challenge will be hosted by Batesville Parks and Recreation, beginning in November. The Iron Distance Wellness Challenge kicks off Nov. 1 and will end on Nov. 30.

While a normal long-distance triathlon is a one-day event, the Iron Distance Wellness Challenge takes place over the course of a month and provides participants with the experience of a competing in a triathlon, in small manageable stages from anywhere they please. This challenge is designed to keep participants focused on daily exercise, encourage diversity in their exercise routine and provide accountability.

In this four-week challenge, participants will plan their workouts to equal the distance of an Ironman Triathlon – a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike, and a 26.2-mile run. This will take place throughout the month of November.

Participants can sign up as an individual or as a relay team with two or three people. All participants will receive a t-shirt for registration and a medal upon completion of the program.

Registration ends Oct. 30 and can be done online at or at the Batesville Community Center front desk, 1420 20th St., in Batesville.
