Ancaster Highschool is hosting the 13th Annual “Dared to Tri” Triathlon & DUATHLON (Run/Bike/Run) ON Friday May 25, 2012

Designed to introduce students to the world of triathlon competition through good old fashioned team work and school spirit, those who “Dare to Tri” face a 300 meter swim, 7 kilometre bike and 3.2 kilometre run on and around the school’s grounds.

With over 600 students, alumni, teachers and parents typically participating this swimming, cycling and running, this annual event will raise significant funds for Bennetto Elementary School, Breast Cancer Research, The Newman Family and Brain Tumour Research.

Fully organized by students for students, this event has seen significant growth since its inception. From humble beginnings in 2000 where a small group of 40 participated, the event has grown in both popularity and participation and is now a much looked forward to event on the school’s yearly calendar.
