Description

Come train like an Olympian for a day!  Scouts will participate in three stations (swim, bike and run) to earn their finisher medal.  The fun doesn’t stop there though – Scouts will be treated to a tour of the Olympic Training Center and have lunch with an Olympian (Retired US Army Veteran and Elite Paratriathlete Howie Sanborn).  Howie will share his inspirational message and talk to Scouts about the importance of staying “physically strong.”
