The Guthrie Chamber of Commerce and the Guthrie YMCA have announced the establishment of the inaugural First Capital Triathlon.
This championship timed event is under the category of a “Sprint Triathlon” due to the length of the event. Competitors will swim 500 meters in open water at Lake Guthrie, bike 12.5 miles and run 5k all on a USA Triathlon (USAT) sanctioned course.
