JALC Tri-Festa Triathlon
Logan Fitness is excited to host the 2022 JALC Tri-Festa Triathlon, an annual event formerly known as the Herrin Tri-Festa Triathlon. This year’s event will be held Saturday, May 28th and will include a 0.25-mile swim, 14-mile bike, and a 3-mile run. The Tri-Festa was previously organized by the late Dr. Rubright of Herrin, IL who lost his battle with cancer in 2018. After a two-year pause due to circumstances surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic, we look forward to continuing Dr. Rubright’s legacy by hosting the Tri-Festa again and providing endurance competitions to the Southern Illinois community.

100-Mile Swim Challenge
The 100-Mile Swim Challenge is a friendly competition that encourages each person to swim 100 miles over the course of a year (January 1-December 31). To reach this goal, participants will need to swim about 2 miles each week. This program encourages Logan Fitness swimmers to push themselves to swim further, to swim consistently throughout the year, and to track their progress along the way.
Any stroke, kick, pull, or drill that gets a participant from one side of the pool to the other counts towards the 100 mile goal. Training equipment such as fins, paddles, kick boards, and pull buoys are also allowed. At Logan Fitness, 35 laps down and back equals one mile (1750 yards). Swimmers will record the distance for each workout in the Logan Fitness Aquatic Center to receive credit for their swim. At the end of each month, results for the event will be updated on the leaderboard. Water walking and jogging is also permitted in the 100 miles challenge. 10 minutes of water walking or jogging in the therapy pool equals 300 yards.
To give yourself maximum time to complete the 100 mile swim challenge, please sign up by January 1. Swimmers may still sign up after the event begins, but the price and distance will not be prorated. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. Cost: $25.00
