It has become an annual event and the 2015 Preston Biathlon is scheduled for Saturday, August 1. Coordinator Chris Groll says people can sign up as an individual or a team and there is a 5K Run and a 14 mile bike event this year. He says a one-mile fun run has also been included this year and it starts at 7:30 a.m.
“We get over 100 people to turn out,” Groll explains. “It’s a great program that brings the community together, bringing some great times during the Preston Rodeo Days and the sidewalk sales and all that kind of fun stuff.
“A lot of people come to our community that time of the year so it’s something fun to do for a family Saturday morning.”
Groll says all of the money raised will be donated to Preston’s Special Olympics team.
