Triathlon tests endurance with cycling, running, swimming events

It was a fast-paced day of competition and fun as members of the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base community gathered at the Dodge Fitness Center in Area A to take on the indoor triathlon.

Contestants had to push themselves for 15 minutes while indoor cycling, running on a treadmill and finally doing laps in the Dodge pool.

Fitness center staff recorded the distance for each competitor for each category, and then the three were added together to get a final number.
