For women who made a New Year¹s resolution to give back, get in shape or ‘tri' something new in 2011, the fifth annual Tri for the Cure AZ offers the perfect solution. More than 1,000 women are anticipated to run, bike and swim their way to a world without breast cancer on Sunday, March 20 at Chandler High School. While the event attracts athletes of all ages and abilities, it is

particularly geared to the first-time or novice female triathlete.

The triathlon course consists of a 400-meter swim, an 8-mile bike and 2-mile run ¬ slightly shorter distances than a standard sprint-triathlon course. And for women who prefer not to swim, the event also offers a run-bike-run duathlon option consisting of a 1-mile run, 8-mile bike and 2-mile run. Participants can also opt to compete as a member of a relay team by participating in one or two legs of the race.

Registration fees are currently $110 for an individual doing the triathlon or duathlon and $215 for a two- or three-person relay team. After March 13, the fees increase. For more information or to
